8.07am: The second day of LFW is here and we’re on our way to Daks, the first show of the day.
9.05am: Daks steps out of the heritage box with soft florals, cropped jackets and A-line skirts, playing with British elegance by adding new shapes, colours and fabrics for a fresh look next season.
Bazaaruk tweeted: The chicest school boy shorts at Daks #LFW
Emma Faiers tweeted: Soundtrack to the #daks show cheered me up on this very early morning... Beatles, California Dreaming and new Foals for the finale #lfw
9.37am: A quick dash (along with camera crews and other show-goers) from Somerset House over to the London Film Museum in Covent Garden for Antipodium.
10.12am: Excitement is building for Monday's Burberry show as Christopher Bailey invites the British brand's Twitter followers to watch the show live
Burberry tweeted: So happy to invite you to watch our show streamed live on Twitter, think it's the 1st time it's been done! #LFW - CB
10.30am: Antipodium starts late, but we don’t mind as the fluoro brights and furry textures brighten us up. Metallic jackets, PVC and electric blue, magenta and silver velvet open-toed heels complete the look this season.
11.00am: It’s back to the LFW press room for a team catch-up and update on the events of the day.
11.45am: A quick stop at Toni & Guy’s Blow-Out Bar for much-needed pre-show blowdries and samples of Label M’s orange-blossom styling range
12.55pm: Time for some lunch, something reasonably healthy to last us through the afternoon from Bill’s in Covent Garden.
2.17pm: Time to catch a cab over to St Paul’s for Julien Macdonald’s show.
3.10pm: Tension at Goldsmith’s Hall was at a high for Julien Macdonald’s first show after two seasons away from London Fashion Week. The notes said Las Vegas and, sure enough, when the show got underway – a little later than scheduled – there was one glittering figure-hugging showstopper after another. Small sequins were scarce; instead the Welsh designer opted for shards of reflective, glass-like material in his signature gold and silver. Metallic colour pops came in canary yellow, azure blue and scarlet red, with texture from feathers, fringing and more sequins. Closing with a particularly risqué fringed look and a final explosion of gold confetti from above to the sounds of Elvis, Julien Macdonald marked his return to LFW in style.
5.16pm: Moschino Cheap and Chic chose to reinterpret 90s-style punk for its show at The Savoy. Sequin-embellished lace, contrast-collar jackets, monochrome fur and head-to-toe pink and leopard-print suits created a glam punk look.
Bazaaruk tweeted: Glam goth stroke rock star at #Moschino this afternoon #lfw
8.10pm: David Koma ends day two of London Fashion Week with padded leather, chokers and shiny black latex-style panels, showing the new look for autumn/winter is the dominatrix. Koma brings an underwater theme to the shores of Fashion Week with padded leather ‘lifejackets’ in statement red, enhanced with extra zips for a rugged look for this winter. His models rock the choker necklines which also look set to become a new trend.
Drapers tweeted: David Koma’s girl was powerful yet a little flirty. #LFW
