With London Fashion Week kicking off with the mightiest of bangs, It's safe to say that It's set to be one of the biggest and brightest to date. But before I delve into the pile of home-grown talent...I need to share one of my favourite collections from NYFW.

The infamous Blonds never fail to put on a show-stopping performance. Their collections are camp, sexy and provocative, reigniting that classic siren beauty that has somehow been lost in fashion today. Every collection is heavily themed and inspired also, whether its the 60's playboy bunny or the Chinese new year...But with the instantly recognisable blond aesthetic running throughout. Think OTT spikes with jewels and crystals the size of your fist and you're on the right track!

Their AW12/13 offering pushed ALL my buttons...with a bit of a fetish for studs and spikes, there's no way I wouldn't love it...but add punk and motorbike gang influences and I'm in L-O-V-E.

The Blonds did just that: All out punk inspired anarchy. The girls slammed their way down the runway oozing with attitude, wearing deliciously ludicrous motorbike helmets complete with 5' ponytails of course. As far as cut and structure go, they didn't really offer anything new. But to be honest, who cares? With out of this world embellishments and detailing such as this, It really doesn't matter.

I was impressed by their use of prints this season too...chains, spikes and rhinestones where screen printed and then crafted into biker jackets, jumpsuits and dresses...bringing the rebellious theme a little more down to earth and, well, 'Ready-to-wear'.

Not to be left out, a few Blond boys made an appearance too...with one in particular catching my attention...well the jacket he was wearing...Bright. Red. Fur. Biker jacket. Words can't express how IN LOVE I AM. Phenomenal!

here are my favourites from the show for you to salivate over...enjoy!
