The show started with an array of models wearing t-shirts spelling out 'Ted Rocks'- I adored their brightly coloured jeans.
Signature bows around the necks and in the hair of the models.
I really liked this peplum detail two piece outfit- a great alternative to a traditional suit.
Geek chic made an appearance too- I love the cut of this blazer.
Cute collar detail tops were teamed with contrasting trousers...
...accessorised with yet more bows and these amazing glasses!
This floral three piece outfit was a wonderfully quirky take on formal dressing.
I adored this muted grey outfit, complete with a beautifully ethereal butterfly print.
These gorgeous prom style dresses were another highlight- the contrasting blue and brown digital print really reminded me of Erdem.
This was probably my favourite look from the show- a classic smock style tunic dress with a black lace effect...
...flared sleeves and a really cute collar.
This vibrant yellow dress would be perfect for a summer holiday...
...as would this beautiful white lace look.
The show drew to a close with a selection of stunning formal wear, including this fit and flare dress...
...which had been styled with a very covetable pearl collar (trust me, it's at the top of my shopping list!)
These black and white lace dresses proved another highlight- with the brocade detailing on the bodice and hem adding some McQueen-esque high fashion magic.
Finally, the show ended with a mini wedding procession- the perfect opportunity for the Ted team to showcase their vibrant array of occasionwear...
...and to round things off with a lot of sparkle!
And, me being me, I couldn't resist showing you the lovely tea and cake we were treated to afterwards- featuring the best macaroons I've ever tasted!
Overall, it was a fantastic event, and I was really inspired by what I saw. Ted Baker's take on SS12 is fresh, colourful and driven by an innate sense of classic style which is just impossible to resist- I've already made a 'must buy' list as long as my arm of all of the pieces I'm going to be keeping an eye out for. Bring on the sunshine!
A big thank you to Siobhan at Ted Baker for the invite.
