Paul Costelloe opened London Fashion Week with a stunning collection of tweeds, metallics, tartan and bright colours. His daughter Jessica opened the show wearing a beautiful, deep red, Harris Tweed coat and the designs to follow were just as pleasing.

The collection, inspired by Costelloe's Irish background, was reminiscent of the 60's with mini skirts, swinging coats, wide legged trousers and babydoll dresses. Emerald green and burnt orange were recurring colours throughout the show. Each model sporting a deep red, crimped bob added a more autumnal feel to the vibrant designs.

Sophisticated and elegant, the womenswear was accompanied by the occasional feature of menswear, dotted throughout the show. Menswear highlights included a burgundy, velvet suit jacket, adventurous orange trousers and boat shoes.

|My favourite design of the collection.|
The show was packed out with guests and went without a hitch.1960's music was a great choice to suit the retro vibe of the show. Personally I loved the designs and felt they were a positive change from his usual more toned down collections, an impressive start to London Fashion Week.
