Louise Gray is one of the shows I never miss. Quirky, fun, and colourful, her collections are an extension of herself (I met her at the Topshop party and she was a total babe).
Known for being the darling of the fashion meets art industry, her collections are a true reflection of London's edgy reputation. Her AW12 collection, inspired by Afirca and barcodes (!) to name a few, married an abundance of print and embellishment; mostly graffiti, tribal, and brocade, alongside mohawk head-wear by milliner Nasir Mazhar (which was captivating in it's own right) and boots by Nicholas Kirkwood. Although her loud colour-ways and 80's party vibe were ever-present, this collection definitely had a more mature edge; with some pieces being reminiscent of Marni, and very wearable in their own right.
In other words, I loved it!
