These fashion designers seem to have taken the Chinese and Japanese culture and springled it into there beautiful designs.

Peter Pilotto:

Peter Pilotto’s show at the Topshop venue was complete with plenty of his signature bold graphics and prints to keep his growing army of fans smiling in their seats. He put on a strong show and managed to capture the modern essence of the east.

Christopher Kane:

Christopher Kane’s catwalk performance commenced on a lilac carpet that brought out the colours of his design.He started with a parade of black and white pin striped outfits and continued with anorak shapes, cable knit polo jumpers that contrasted with floral embroidered skirts made for a tough look. He used bright bold colours and outfits that told a story of there own such as below where a police officer (cop) seeks out a gay serial killer among seedy New York clubs.

The most amazing scene is to come. Snow was created for the Burberry catwalk:

The guardian writes ‘When the Burberry catwalk show finale began to a crack of thunder, and a simulated rainstorm sent water streaming down all sides of the vast transparent marquee while the audience watched from within, it was a fitting end to a show in which Burberry re-established an emotional warmth lacking in some recent seasons
