Day 1 of London Fashion Week with Emulsion London

Emulsion London are back at London Fashion Week to get the best coverage of what designers have to offer for Autumn/Winter 2018.

I got to see Ki Price, co-creator and photographer of Emulsion London, do what he does best and get those desired photographs of the new collections from Fyodor Golan and Bora Asku.

Not only were the models looking exceptional in the new designs but Price sure entered in style too, wearing his Vivienne Westwood suit and INEOS injunction t-shirt.

He shows off his style in the best way possible: sitting on the same throne Lady Gaga posed on for a Hello Kitty shoot.

London-based Turkish designer Bora Asku delivers a collection of feminine meets masculine attire.

We saw white, frilly dresses with sheer panels and Victoriana-like collars, contrasted with dark, tailored suits made of velvet and cashmere wools.

The collection was said to be inspired by a Georgian-era woman who had to dress up as man in order to be a surgeon, as it was unheard of for a woman to be a doctor in that time.

Not only did Bora Asku showcase elegant and preppy pieces but also shows experimentation with gender and clothing.

 

Fyodor Golan:

Fyodor Golan has teamed with MTV to create some serious bold looks.

The designer has not been afraid of contrasting bright reds and yellows with blues and greys, and adding rainbow stripes, his signature design.

The MTV logo was displayed on the pieces, such as on the front and sleeves of sweatshirts to showcase the collaboration.

Models had dramatic white make up on their eyes and forehead, which allowed the clothes to truly be the source of colour.

Overall, Fyodor Golan definitely showed us how to conquer street style.

 

PETA Protest:

PETA, which stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, had activists protest topless outside of the LFW studios.

The protestors had ‘wear your own skin’ written on their topless bodies to try and encourage passers-by to stand up against animal clothing products; this includes fur, leather, shearling etc.

The radical vegan protest took the attention of many, especially us, as this is the second protest that has happened during LFW (the first being Dame Vivienne Westwood’s anti-fracking protest).
