LFW AW14; Vintage Glamour

The retro ones

Mimi Fasi and Zeynep Kartel looked to vintage glamazonians for inspiration in their AW14 collections. Both shows featured big hair and highly feminine looks with silky fabrics and flattering shapes.

Mimi Fasi’s collection was full of colour and left me dreaming of being on a tropical island sipping on cocktails. I guess being at London Fashion Week was the next best thing. Being a girly girl myself and also originating from tropical shores, this collection had everything that I love, lots of bright pinks and other bold colours and prints, floaty fabrics and general effortlessly chic ensembles.

Zeynep Kartal based her collection on the Hollywood sirens from the golden days of glamour. The femme fatale seemed to be a major theme as models strutted down the catwalk in figure hugging gowns often baring an eyeful of flesh, with deep plunge necks and sheer fabrics. Like Fasi’s, this collection celebrated femininity with beautifully detailed sequin embellishment or full on sparkly looks on almost all outfits.
