Clashing prints, jewel colors round up last day of London Fashion Week
LONDON (AP) ' London Fashion Week is winding down its last day of womenswear shows with catwalk displays from Mary Katrantzou, Roksanda Illincic and Osman.
Katrantzou, the 28-year-old Athenian designer, has gained a wide following in just three years with her bold and intricate prints. For spring and summer 2012, she showed a dazzling collection of clashing colors, ethereal printed gowns and her signature stiff, architectural dresses.
Serbian-born Ilincic turned out loosely structured dresses with dropped waists and bell sleeves. The palette was rich with jewel tones and brights like jade, turquoise and fuschia.
London's fashion extravaganza has featured the latest collections by heavyweights such as Burberry Prorsum and Vivienne Westwood.
It wraps up Wednesday with menswear.
