It’s day one of London Fashion Week and we’re very excited at jones + jones HQ!

With all the doom and gloom surrounding the economy, isn’t it great when you realise you can recycle your S/S 2011 and A/W 2011 wardrobes for S/S 2012, making those had-to-have purchases today even more lust-worthy and if your boyfriend asks, cost effective?! Or even better treat yourself guilt-free in S/S 2011 sales now to garments that will transform your S/S 2012 wardrobe?!

New York Fashion Week is well under way now and glossy new photos are arriving onto the Elle and Vogue websites as soon as the catwalks are finished!

Black and white, bold and bright, colour blocking, full-skirts, sweetheart necklines and glimpses of pleats and sheer fabrics have all been spotted on the runways so far!

S/S 2012 collections from Marc by Marc Jacobs to Betsey Johnson have been featuring bright and bold block colours ready to add a splash of colour back into our wardrobes next Spring!

jones + jones at the CPH Vision Party S/S 2012 hosted by Marc by Marc Jacobs TONIGHT!

How very glamorous of us to have our own table at the CPH Vision Party S/S 2012 hosted by Marc by Marc Jacobs in Copenhagen tonight! The party is part of Copenhagen Fashion Week S/S 2012, the largest fashion event in Northern Europe, which has included catwalks and amazing fashion trade fairs this week.

So far for us it’s been all about the fringed boots and fuchsia pink  textured florals from the Munthe Plus Simonsen S/S 2012 collection, pretty pastels at Charlotte Eskildsen S/S 2012 and we loved the strawberry coloured hair and ultra-cute sunglasses at Stine Goya S/S 2012!

If you’re lucky enough to be attending the CPH Vision Party tonight, come and find the jones + jones table and say hello to our lovely team and guests, all of which will of course be wearing their favourite jones + jones dresses!

Watch this space for all of the fashion week gossip and party photos next week!
