Woven crowns and Kelly Brook the queen of glamour on the front row: Bora Aksu goes regal for spring/summer 2013

Turkish designer Bora Aksu is known for his signature cocktail dresses, and today's show hinted that he might want a certain young royal to be spotted in one of his designs some day soon.
Theatrical layered dresses in pastel shades were teamed with round-toed court shoes, simple clutches and elaborate woven crown-style headpieces, and the audience could not miss the nod to duchess Kate, the nation's newest style icon.
Aksu wouldn't confirm whether Kate had been behind the designs, instead referencing another royal style icon: Queen Victoria's grand-daughter.

Light layers gave the dresses an ethereal effect as the models glided down the catwalk and contrasting clutches added pops of colour
Speaking ahead of the show at Somerset House Aksu said: 'My main starting point for inspiration came from Queen Victoria's grand-daughter, Marie, who became the Queen of Romania in 1922.

    'The way she embraced traditional Romanian culture without losing her Englishness led to a lot of beautiful references.
    'As well as her style and charisma, inspiration for spring/summer 2013 has come from the love she had for her botanical garden in Balchik.'

    Kate, of course, is otherwise engaged during London Fashion Week, but another national treasure was on hand to light up Aksu's front row.
    Model Kelly Brook arrived looking radiant in a rust coloured skater-style dress by the designer 
    Kelly said after the show: 'I thought it was incredible. Really feminine, really floaty, it's amazing.
    Asked what she thought of London Fashion Week, she said: "From what I've seen so far, it's inspiring, that's why I like to come along and see. It kind of gets you in the mood. You get some good ideas.

    Details: Coloured woven crowns were worn with piles of candy floss hair and miniature fish plaits
    London's always a hot spot really, people come here for films, theatre and I think a lot of fashion's influenced by that and people in all areas are creative.
    Also in the front row was singer Kate Nash who said that Aksu was one of her favourite designers.
    She said: 'I'm a really big fan of Bora Aksu. Last season I saw my first show of his and I fell in love with it.'
    Nash, who is to perform a secret gig as part of Fashion Week, said she was a regular each season.
    She added: "I really love London. I really like the sort of people it attracts, it has a real sense of fun.
    'It attracts lots of freaks and weirdos, in the best way. It's very individual and celebrates the outsider.'
