#LFW12 Hosts A Fashion #Retrospective

One of the highlights of London Fashion Week 2012 has to be Bourne and Hollingsworth first ever vintage catwalk show - Retrospective, journeyed through time and space plucking out the very best vintage pieces from names like Mary Quant, Dior, Ossie Clark, Chanel and Givenchy, recreating exciting fashion forward looks for SS 2013.The after party was full of theatre and a dazzling display of dance as a flash mob of flapper girls took to the floor whilst onlookers sipped Bourne and Hollingsworth cocktails dressed in their finest vintage attire. 

I first fell in love with Aquascutum years ago when I snagged a classic short cream 60s mac from a charity shop for the ridiculous price of £2.00, the cut was sublime and suited the 60's phase I was working at the time, it went everywhere with me, so I think this stunning red and navy Aquascutum mac from the 1970s has to be one of favourite pieces in this little line up together with the punchy and elegant bee stripe Ossie Clark dress from the 70s.Do you have a favourite look or piece from this little line up? Should Vintage fashions have a regular airing at London Fashion Week?
