It was another packed show schedule for Team MC on day five of London Fashion Week

After a late night at the  Kenzo and Liberty party hosted and at Topshop's party for JW Anderson, Team MC got a breezy wake up call at the Thomas Tait show held in a skate park on the Southbank.

LONDON FASHION WEEK PARTIES - ALL THE PICS

We soon warmed up with a strong and uber cool collection of punchy colbat blues, crisp whites and zingy greens in the form of cocoon coats, mannish tux blazers and slouchy jumpers.

Mulberry was a star studded affair Kate Moss, Lana Del Rey, Alexa Chung, Olivia Palmero and Olympic heroine Jessica Ennis who sat beside our Editor in Chief Trish Halpin on the front row.

Then it was onto the opulent setting of the Savoy's riverside ballroom for Roksanda Ilincic. Referencing 1970's Northern Soul it was one of her finest collections. Her signature punchy bright colours - this time tangerines, colbat blues and egg yolk yellows appeared on fluid line dresses with bishop sleeves while high-waisted flared trousers were teamed with girly metallic organza tops with contrast collars.

Anya Hindmarch unveiled her 'Pomp & Pleasure' collection with a pop-up roating Victorian stage in the Park Lane Hotel. Each bag was housed in an individual room of the illustated display like the 'Marano' Music clutch which when wound up plays Vivaldi's 'Spring' Concerto from the Four Seasons. As a shower of buttefly shaped confetti was a released Anya appeared playing an organ. What fun!

Then it was back to Somerset House for Simone Rocha. Layering and mixing fabrics it was a stand-out collection showing just how much the bright designer has developed in the two years since her Fashion East debut. Her signature use of perspex - namely on brogues was still there but this time in the form of box-shaped tote bags and halo-like headpieces too. Rocha had also played with fabrics again, this time around she layered and mix-matched broderie anglaise and crochet with metallic leathers, lurex and even plastic flowers. A particular wow piece being a neon yellow pencil skirt in sheer lace with oversized embrodered daisies teamed with a matching boxy cropped jacket. 

Continuing our bright mood were Meadham Kirchhoff who sent models plucking flower petals or eating cake down the runway. It was a magical mixture of shapes and materials that only Meadham can pull off - embellishment, bows, ruffles, lurex, corsets, boater style hats and over the knee boots that sound so wrong but appear so right.
