The bold ones
Some of my favourite shows left me with vibrant images in my head such as bold prints, witchy hair, statement bling and shoes.
Sadie Clayton was in the beautiful setting of St Giles Church in Soho which was the perfect setting for the dramatic collection, which had a gothic feel with an edge. The collection was entirely black and the futuristic shapes on tops and shoes not to mention a beautiful gold collar definitely made it one of my most memorable shows.
Yulia Kondranina, winner of the Fashion Scout Merit Award has received rave reviews from the likes of Vogue. I was excited to get the change to interview her for Noctis magazine and she revealed that the inspiration from the collection was the 90’s. She wanted to make it less feminine than her previous collections and there were oversized coats and chunky buckles.
After hearing about the excitement surrounding the previous Sorapol shows I was excited to attend my first one. The show was as dramatic as I expected with a witch theme taken to the extreme. It started with a screening of a film featuring a floating witch and models wore witch hair and hats. There was also a sort of witch dance performance following on from the film. Despite the witchy theme the collection was certainly not of halloween costume calibre. The guests clapped and cheered as beautiful silk gowns and amazingly tailored pieces in a variety of dazzling print and fabrics floated down the runway.
Belle Sauvage made use of bright reds and fun youthful prints. The sound track was also amazing- if anyone reading this attended and knows what it was please share. It was a feel good show from the music to each of the stunning outfits. There were many figure hugging pieces and the collection was full of sex appeal, perfect for confident fashionistas who are not afraid to stand out in a crowd!
