London Fashion Week Spring 2009 Trends

London Fashion Week (14th-19th September 2008) revealed some of the spring 2009 trends. These were the most obvious for me; if you noticed other trends feel free to share your findings.

1. Color block: clashing two or three color combinations; hot pink or fuchsia makes a vivid contrast with fluorescent shades of yellow, orange or green.

2. Denim love: denim sets, shirt-dresses, acid wash, skinny or boyfriend jeans; and distressed denim gets a new meaning at House of Holland.

3. Origami folds: designer skills lie in amazing 3D clothes that seem to have their own life.

4. Frills and ruffles: the newest form for ruffles: petals, leaves or circles (in Christopher Kane's case) in cascading tiers which evoke exotic creatures.

5. Golden prize: After seasons of silvery hues it is time for gold to come back as instant glamour. Best teamed with nude shades or hues of grey.

6. Rainbow prints: distorted rainbows and colorful puzzle at Basso&Brooke make more impact on long dresses and jumpsuits.
