Luxury fashion brand, Rohmir, unveiled their new collection for Autumn/Winter 13 on Day 1 of London Fashion Week, setting the standard high. Designer and creative director, Olga Roh, showcased her wide range of ready-to-wear designs, which consisted of glamorous daywear and stunning evening gowns.
The atmosphere was electric and there was a real sense of excitement in the air as we waited for the show to begin. The pounding music created even more anticipation among London’s photographers, fashion-lovers and journalists. Then, as the lights dimmed and the music switched to another up-beat track, the loud chitter-chatter of the crowd simmered and the first model stepped onto the catwalk.
The collection was visually enchanting and fairytale-like featuring colourways from striking monochrome to glittering gold and magical wintry shades. The bewitching hues, dramatic feathers and flecks of glitter brought to life Roh’s vision to transport onlookers to a far-away land full of romance and adventure. There were so many beautiful pieces on the catwalk, but – even though it was really hard – we’ve selected our top 5 favourite looks. Enjoy!

So, after we finished gazing at the gorgeous fashion on the catwalk, we dived into the crowd to uncover some of the best dressed show-goers. Here’s who we met –
Fashion student, Jade, looks chic in an all black outfit from Oasis and Jeffrey Campbell shoes. Jade loved the infusion of feathers on the Rohmir catwalk.
Law student, Katie, loved the long evening gowns at Rohmir. She dresses up this smart/casual look with high-heeled boots.
Film student, Sabrina, rocks the monochrome trend in a fur coat from Topshop, H&M skirt, and a top she customised herself.
Hannah is studying a masters in Arabic and looks gorgeous in her hat from H&M, self-customised dress and vintage jewellery.
More shows coming soon. Stay tuned!
