After presenting his gladiatorial SS13 collection (see our report here), Marios Schwab stripped down to the bare essentials and threw LFW’s sexiest party. Shrouded in secrecy we couldn’t take pictures of the whole kit and caboodle but we could get snap happy amongst the crowd. We hope you enjoy the show!

When? Sunday evening, after a full day of show-stopping fashion show action courtesy of (deep breath) Preen, Margaret Howell, Vivienne Westwood, Topshop, Acne, Paul Smith, Mary Katrantzou, Christopher Raeburn, Jonathan Saunders and a certain fine fingered fella going by the name of Marios Schwab.
What? A burleseque bonanza held at the temporary UK holiday home of famed, late night Parisian haunt, Crazy Horse. Presenting two condensed versions of their nightly performance, the eye-poppingly, drink-droppingly gorgeous Crazy Horse ladies gave a whole new meaning to the fashion show concept as they switched from their regular ‘costumes’ for one night only to wear Marios Schwab’s debut underwear line, but more on that later. When not getting hot under the collar in front of the grande dames of sensual seduction, the crowd filled up on bitesize meat feasts courtesy of fashion pack fave Rita’s, clinked glasses and shuffled stilettos as Pixie Geldof spun her way through the 90s. Tres chic.
Why? A celebration of Marios Scwhab’s premiere lingerie line ‘Kallisti’. Produced as part of ASOS Inc, ASOS’s designer support initiative, Marios’s Kallisti collection is comprised of forty pieces, twenty-five of which will be exclusively available from ASOS in November.
