Ashley Williams LFW SS16 Show Report

      As Ashley Williams sent her army of sassy misfits down a volcanic sand runway yesterday morning, she made sure that we knew not to mess: warning us of their bad moods. Rebellious to their cores, these “anti-princesses” aren’t discreet about who they are; they wear their morals and attitudes on their sleeves,…

Marques Almeida SS16 LFW Show Report

  Although it started out in all white and ended in the same manner, Marques’ Almeida’s SS16 show was anything but a wash out. Their signature ruffled denim pieces were given new life in sheer magenta chiffon, and hot scarlet sateen. A glossy, oversized biker in tar thrown over a strewn, billowing gown harks back…

Ashish LFW SS16 Show Report

      When rounding the free spirited show at Ashish, we saw a consummate marriage of Sparkles, skateboards and a touch of sharp sass that the Harlem vogue scene would be proud of. The show glided on with skater girls playfully swaying down the runway in their relaxed hems, sequinned slouchy tracksuits and voluminous…

Claire Barrow LFW SS16 Presentation Report

               For SS16 Claire Barrow has once again created a completely immersive and eerie world in which to reflect on and confront the fears of our own. ‘Broken Machines’, conjures a world in which technology has broken down and died out, leaving our tech-reliant society in darkness. At the…

Sibling LFW SS16 Show Report

               On paper, (or on screen, as you’re reading this), the latest offering from Sibling sounds all wrong; muted pastel tones of yellow, lilac and pink manifested through stripes or leopard print, framed by banners of red and black, finished with patent court heels and a sheer, ribbed sport…

Fashion East LFW SS16 Show Report

     Before Shoreditch became the trendy meeting point for the painfully normal, the east end of London used to be rife with creative geniuses before all the pop up shops and nine ‘til fivers came along. In those days, drunken idiots and creative geniuses alike would gather together in their local boozer of choice, The…

Faustine Steinmetz LFW SS16 Presentation Report

When we think of Faustine Steinmetz, handwoven shredded denim usually springs to mind, but forget what you thought you knew – this season marked the designers  venture into new realms of territory. For SS16, our everyday staples were reimagined and distorted through a surreal lens, with the help of conceptual influences from artists Salvador Dali…

Fyodor Golan SS16 Show Report

           What do you get when you marry the inspirations of transformers, rave, space, hippies and geishas with sexuality, pop, childhood and nature? I couldn’t guess either, but think badass futuristic babes baring lots of skin, clad in plastic, chiffon, and ruffles, all whilst taking cues from Princess Ardala. Channeling retro…

Molly Goddard SS16 Presentation Report

    Following a life drawing class for her first presentation in February 2015, Molly Goddard returns this season serving up soggy sandwiches and her trademark tulle. Goddard’s coming of age style, for me, always seems to incur the misplaced memories of the nostalgic nineties. Remember waking up on the day of your Birthday party…
