During the second half of Milan fashion week, one of my favorite collections was Dolce & Gabbana. The ladylike designs were a tribute to Ancient Greco/Roman history. A gold coin motif was used throughout, both through belts and embellisments. Other standout looks came from Roberto Cavalli, Bottega Veneta, and Jil Sander.

London fashion week wrapped up with more eye catching prints from Peter Pilotto, delicate lace from Erdem, pastels from Burberry Prorsum, and glitz from Christopher Kane and Tom Ford.

Christopher Kane's flower power collection contained petal cutouts on blazers and dresses as well as scientific diagramas of the flower on several pieces, and a few beautiful transluscent garments and pumps.
Tom Ford's collection was expertly tailored and sculpted, sure to make any woman feel powerful
Erdem used beautiful lace and neutral colors to convey the intricate details
London Fashion Week so far has been quite amazing. Digital prints are all over the runways as well as 3d floral touches, as with Matthew Williamson, Temperley London, and John Rocha. Duchess Kate is sure to be outfitted by the majority of the Spring Temperley London collection while gorgeous digital prints at House of Holland and Mary Katrantzou are likely to be imitated by fast fashion shops all over the world. London continues to be my favorite fashion capital and the following images can atest to that!
