London Fashion Week AW13 at BAKU London Was Fun

New London restaurant, called BAKU after the capital of Azerbaijan, hosted a series of fashion shows during the London Fashion Week AW2013.  I visited two catwalks:  by Soho based Italian designer Nico Didonna and Norwegian designer Nina Naustdal from Chelsea.  The decadent interiors of the Knightsbridge restaurant created an impressive backdrop for shows and receptions:  with mirrors, white chandeliers and art on the walls.

Nico Didonna presented his chic and glamorous Autumn Winter evening collection alongside innovative menswear to Jazz music on 15 February.  Calm Jazz sensations blended with Crepe Jersey, silks and cashmere and culminated in spellbinding movements, that showcased the female form.  Double cobalt blues with gold metals, seductive reds, soft leathers and luxurious wool offered a unique, quality choice for a discerning client.

British Bulldog Pavarotti watched Nico Didonna catwalk with a kind of interest from a front row seat.

Chelsea based designer of Norwegian origin Nina Naustdal presented her Autumn Winter 2013 Gold collection at BAKU on 18 February.  Inspired by raw diamonds, her collection featured exotic shimmering animal print gowns and stunning separates in vivid colour palette, classically tailored in silk, chiffon and velvet with  leather detail.
