Laura Whitmore, Dionne Bromfield and Kate Nash just some of the stars on the FROW at the designer’s collection

Bora Aksu kicked off London Fashion Week this morning with a stunning, wearable AW13 collection.

The London-based Turkish designer sent us back to the 1920s with a range reminiscent of the Art Deco era.

But towards the end of the show, Bora presented a pop of colour in the form of fuchsias, raspberry pink and blackberry hues.

The designs featured intricate detailing including scallop edges, lace work and embellished beading to evoke the 1920s feel of the show.

Shapes varied between loose and floaty dresses that moved on the models to tight corsets and edgy crop tops.

The models wore unique headpieces that framed their faces and looked Gladiator-esque.

Their hair was slicked back into stunning plaited up-dos and a slick of vivid orange lipstick completed the look.
