Vilorija showed a collection which was clearly influenced by looks of the past with a very nostalgic and feminine feel. Dresses anchored the collection, while shorts and even pants provided a more modern element. Although the collection had a few pieces (some of which are below) which I found more relatable to my personal preferences (such as the matching tops and shorts and long fitted maxis) the majority of the collection was something I couldn't see a huge portion of buyers wearing (although of course there is always a niche market). I would be interested in seeing these pieces styled differently just to see how they would be worn by say the fashion blogger crowd or just the everyday women in general.

Though I have to add I could see someone like Nicki Minaj rocking the printed pants or shorts on a casual day out if styled in a different manner!
Linden's presentation was something that I found to be a truly entertaining concept. With models undressing and dressing in different items from the collection right in front of viewers we got to see how the pieces could be worn in different combinations with ease. In general I find that presentations can provide more of an idea of the atmosphere of the designers line in comparison to just runway shows. I also liked quite a few of the items in the collection such as the high waisted undergarments and paneled leggings. What do you think do, are presentations becoming more important than ever (the Kanye x Adidas collab certainly made the headlines)?
There's a moment when you see a show and immediately know its high caliber and has capabilities for huge success. Well, William Bradley's FW15 runway was definitely one of those great occasions. With sharp tailoring and eye catching details, the collection was chic, stylish, yet oh so wearable. The simple styling also assured the viewers that nothing extra was needed to distract from the clothing. Its safe to say I'm still lusting over the grey, suede dress and fur/leather vest that were shown.
