Fam Ivroll AW 2012 by Claire Kearns
Fam Ivroll by Claire Kearns

After a morning of delightful yet quite dark and monochrome shows, Norweigan-born Fam Ivroll jolted me and the rest of the audience wide-awake in her London Fashion Week A/W 2012 catwalk debut. As the lights darkened, a model walked out with a menacing-looking 'monster' pose, snarling and thrashing as if she was a woman possessed while a strobe flashed on and off. As I tried to guess what was going on, the lights were suddenly turned up to sunlight-bright and the original Ghostbusters theme tune thumped through the room, setting the mood for one of my favourite shows so far.

London Fashion Week A/W 2011 Catwalk Review: Ones to Watch (by Amelia)

Fashion Scout's Ones to Watch showed another tightly edited collection of fashion designers to look out for. My favourite? A no brainer - Kirsty Ward stole the show. But there was also much to admire from Anja Mlakar, Tze Goh and Sara Bro-Jorgensen. With lush illustrations, of course.
