Fashionista's March Madness, Round One: London

Out of all the cities in our March Madness Bracket, the nominations for London were the most erratic. Unlike cities New York or Milan, where clear front-runners emerged, the race for London was tight--which lead to some disappointing losses, including fan-favorite Simone Rocha. The players who were lucky enough to make the tourney--Christopher Kane, Preen, Burberry, and Jonathan Saunders--will now duke it out to the next round.

CHRISTOPHER KANE vs PREEN

Christopher Kane started strong with a collection full of interesting detailing, but then committed a technical foul with what voters called a "mild" lack of editing.

This allowed Preen to come up from behind with a sleek, futuristic aesthetic that won over voters. Nora called the collars and great tailoring "the fastest way to looking polished."

But in the end, voters felt like Christopher Kane is in position to be the next big luxury player, cinching the game with a three pointer that was all net.

WINNER: Christopher Kane

BURBERRY vs JONATHAN SAUNDERS

Despite Burberry's hotly contested spot in the competition--it barely eeked past Simone Rocha to make the bracket--this game went into overtime.

Jonathan Saunders was the underdog, with voters calling him an "underrated" talent of London. He put points on the board with his strong and concise collection. But Burberry quickly tied up the game with the use of cheeky rubber material.

Ultimately, Burberry proved it deserved its spot in OT, with Hayley saying the show "took it to the next level with a crazy A-list front row and live performance."

WINNER: Burberry
