LFW - Bora Aksu A/W 2011 collection

London Fashion Week 2011 kicked off in full force on Friday with the Bora Aksu A/W 2011 collection. For the LFW virgins among you, Bora Aksu is a London-based Turkish designer who graduated from the prestigious Central Saint Martins MA course in 2002 and quickly became 'one to watch'. Even Domencio Dolce and Stephano Gabbana purchased items from his shows for inspiration. His Autumn/Winter 2011 collection did not disappoint, with a nod towards the darker side of Victorian London and Sweeney Todd-esque designs. Playing with fabrics and textures and a predominantly grey and black palette, his collection expertly combined layering and tailoring in a variety of materials, using stiff fabrics like leather and wool with softer fabrics like sheer chiffon to create dark and edgy pieces to dramatic and theatrical effect.

With over 10 shows under his belt, Bora's collaborations and projects with various artists continues and he remains a designer worthy of London Fashion Week. He has also displayed an interest in social responsibility by signing a contract with People Tree-Fair trade organisation to design an exclusive capsule collections to raise an awareness on fair trade work shops.

And, like everything else these days and never more so than in fashion, where there are celebrities, everyone else follows. With a impressive front row that included Twiggy, singer Maria Diamandis from Marina and the Diamonds and Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts it's clear that Bora Aksu isn't losing his fashion kudos anytime soon.
