London Fashion Week saw its busiest day so far Sunday, with editors and buyers rushing across the city for back-to-back spring womenswear preview shows. With so much to see, what was memorable?

Volume was one key feature, with loose trapeze tops and skirts playing a starring role at both Temperley London and Mulberry. Another is think pink: the color, already so popular in stores this fall and winter, looks set to enjoy another season in the limelight come spring. Preen had bright neon pink in its collection, while Temperley employed all shades of blush, rose and fuchsia for an all-out romantic mood.

But talk about memorable can't leave out British fashion's grand dame Vivienne Westwood, who dialed up her typical mix of fashion and environmental activism by opening her show with a modern dance performance by model Lily Cole.

The solo dance, used to symbolize the destruction caused by climate change, almost sidelined Westwood's designs, though her fans were still happy to see another collection of their favorite cinched-in outfits and draped dresses.

Sunday was Day 3 of London Fashion Week, and the fashion elite, led by American Vogue editor Anna Wintour and other celebrities, was seen at shows from Westwood to Matthew Williamson, Jonathan Saunders, Mary Katrantzou and Unique by Topshop.

Shoe designers Manolo Blahnik and Sophia Webster and heritage leather goods brand Smythson also presented collections to editors and buyers.
