London Fashion WeekFashion Week has got off to a successful start with Prophetik being my standout show so far.  A label I’ve heard much about but not seen before, designer Jeff Garner’s schtick is thoughtful fashion.   Coming from Nashville, he showed puffy-shouldered pintuck cotton blouses, sweeping champray dresses and Western-flavoured equestrian menswear (complete with natty neckscarves) all in faded, worn-in fabrics.  Sustainability and eco-consciousness is at the heart of the label so fabrics use plant and earth dyes for their gently-dipped effect.  A hillbilly hoedown finale rounded things off rather nicely.

Continuing the environmentally-friendly theme of the day, the British Fashion Council staged The Sustainability Show at Clarence House.  Rigged up in the grounds (an outdoor show in September?  Brave.), the show celebrated brands who have supported the cause for ethically produced fashion. Amongst them were my favourite upcycler Christopher Raeburn, whose recycled parachute jackets now come in zingy, springy prints.  I also found out that Vivienne Westwood‘s World’s End collection is made from factory offcuts.  Who knew?
