London Fashion Week TrendsThe beginning of Spring/Summer 2011 season of fashion is just round the corner and you're still confused on what to wear during this season? While most of us were still hunting down for a perfect look and apparels for the Autumn/Winter season, many fashion houses showcased their Spring/Summer collection at Somerset House for London Fashion Week 2011. Here are some latest fashion trends right from the runway!

Like New York designers, London also followed the 70s era, from high-waisted shorts and flared trousers to fringing, pleating and feather details. Many designers differentiated their creations with embroidered patchwork embellishment, patterns, prints and skyscraper platforms.

This season, most of the designers played with the pleats, adding texture and movement to the tops, dresses and even sleeves. Though, printed dresses is not something new for Spring and Summer, this season, floral fancies have been given a reworking, making them more attractive and interesting than ever. Erdem, a designer, injected geometric prints into classic florals, whereas Henry Holland created the banana leaf print for dresses. 


For this season, designers had flaunt themselves by putting huge emphasis on the embellishment of garments and adding copious amount of statement finishing touches to their collections. They added metallic yarn to add glamor to summer knitwear, giving a chain-mail effect. The jewelry shown at the NEWGEN exhibition also reflected this trend with work from many designers.

Interestingly, 'pieced-together' clothing and multi-fabrication seemed to become a micro trend of 2011 gaining momentum fast. Due to this, many designers started to weave several influences together into a  single garment. This multi-influence approach is an another fashion trend which we will be seen more in the next few seasons.

The London Fashion Week S/S 2011 was a showcase of innovative, exciting designs. Many designers presented adventurous and ambitious collections, setting high standard for Milan and Paris to follow.
This season truly felt like a fashion season that everyone could enjoy, get excited about and, ultimately, wear.
