Cara Delevinge Led the Way at the Topshop Unique Show at London Fashion Week
London Fashion Week wouldn’t be London Fashion Week without a leading Brit model, and as was last season, for S/S15 it was all about Cara Delevingne. While the outspoken 22-year-old is known for her tomboy style, she was the epitome of glamour on the catwalk as she led an army of models which also included her BFF Jourdann Dunn and Lily Donaldson to the end of the runway at the Topshop Unique show.
The show itself was, as always the highlight of the week, with a celeb-pack frow including Alexa Chung, Ellie Goulding, Pixie Geldof, Daisy Lowe Hailee Steinfeld, Poppy Delevingne and Anna Wintour in attendance. Guests snacked on fashionable treats and sipped on bubbly in the purpose-built Topshop Café before the show began – making it a highlight for many starving fashionistas!
The high street giant opted for a sport luxe feel to the first half of the show focusing on British sports with cycling inspired jerseys, tennis-style frocks, and even the frilly brief we remember from our primary school PE lessons! Accessories came in the form of bowling bags.
The second half of the show took on a more elegant feel with floaty fabrics ballet-style intricately embroidered dresses and delicate heels with ankle-tie ribbons. Head designer Emma Farrow spoke of the collection to Mail Online: “For S/S15, it's the faded glamour of the British seaside, from pier to Pleasure Beach,' she said. “At its core is a switched-on, youthful spirit – a dance-all-night, sea-sprayed celebration of British youth culture that lives for the weekend” – sounds just like Cara to us!
