Amber Le Bon documents her London Fashion Week experience through a series of Instagram images for Wonderland.
“Loving the punk mohawk and fluffiness at Sibling! The show was a riot of colour and textures with latex alongside knitwear, and fluffy clouds of feathers embodying their woman. She was the kind of woman who’s backstage at all the best gigs, hanging out with the band.”
“The finale at the David Koma show. I loved the ruffle sleeves and the colour palette of nudes, black, orange and blue. Some sparkly showstoppers closed the show with incredible beadwork.”
“The Fashion Week brain-fade has arrived and the craziness starts to kick in at the Palmer//Harding presentation, just sitting in a corn field … standard!”
“An impromptu fashion lunch with my partner-in-crime Mama Le Bon at Roka, just enough time for some sake in between the Topshop an Mary Katrantzou’s Shows.”
“The Sophia Webster presentation is always amazingly styled and staged, and this season was no exception. Her fantastic bags and shoes were perfectly shown in the midst of a robotic, candy, dreamworld at the Welsh Chapel on Shaftesbury Avenue.”
“One of the most interesting catwalks that I saw all of fashion week, pink foam pyramids formed the models’ Red Carpet. Luckily their flat-form Mary Jane’s were were on very capable feet, which were paired with midi fishtail skirts and some masterful, printed, colour blocking.”
“Just two Models1 girls and DJ Duo called LeBonTong, doing our weird thing at the agency, which happens to be very conveniently situated for between show outfit changes.”
“Becky Tong and I’s DJ agent Justin Girdler trying his hand at doing some show booking… multitalented.”
“These little fluffy monsters at the Markus Lupfer presentation really REALLY wanted to come home with me. They told me so, sadly my smuggling skills weren’t up to much.”
“Great sunglasses at the Markus Lupfer presentation, a 70s influence has been big in general this season.”
“I feel like this cute little fashion monster by the end of fashion week. This was one of the pieces at the Coach Future Contemporaries party at the Sackler Gallery.”
“Giles was one of my other favourite shows of the week. Long billowing dresses drenched in dark fantasy were embroidered with colourful mushrooms, whilst ruffled chokers and cuffs, and patent leather bodices added to the gothic drama. The show was brilliantly cast with big names, and each model bringing some of her own personality to bring the show alive. It became more than just a fashion show, this was a fantastical story being told on a catwalk entrancing and entertaining everyone watching.”
“Tell It To My Face!!! I think the lovely model and I agreed with this entirely. You go Sophia Webster, tell the world!”
