London Fashion Week S/S Day Two

Plus-size models. Sharp ruffles. Optical illusion, psychadelic prints. Day Two at this season's LFW saw them all.
My two favourites were Mark Fast and Mary Katrantzou.

'plus-size models' at Mark Fast

She's hardly plus-size! But i love this 'body concious look' which is everywhere.

Origami-esque ruffles from Mark Fast
This dress is divine. Powder blue and grey are so pretty together and the ruffles add perfect drama to the delicate knit.

Psychadelic colour splash at Mary Karantzou
I am crazy over these prints... Every dress has the widest colour palette and the most extreme pattern combinations: water effects, zebra print, optical illusion-esque spirals.
And the models are wearing chunky bangles on their ankles - SO cool.

Wow I can't believe that they classified that woman as "plus size". Either way she is stunning and in my opinion far from plus size. Love the dress.
