THREE of London Fashion Week is where we see a series of
designers from Fashion East, a company whose aim to aid young designers
starting out fresh in the fashion industry. A few selected designers
are given the opportunity to show a collection at London Fashion
Week after being given guidance and mentoring. Additionally, there
were Holly Fulton, Marios Schwab, and Unique, the higher-end collection
Holly Fulton has remained true to her signature style,
her collection approaching the runway with full geometric prints,
bright pop-out colours and heavy top-to-toe accessories. Her collection
shows beautiful attention to detail and makes you want to take a
lovely safari holiday. Her silhouettes are clean-cut with a collection
of shift dresses, taking emphasis on the bold prints and colours
throughout. A favourite was the colourful and sunny sequinned shift
Marios Schwabs collection stayed within the dark
muted colour tones creating interest with different textures and
layers. Simple shaped dresses made with revealing fabrics managed
to show off the models skin and shape of the body underneath.
There was the occasional flash of shimmer revealed to catch your
eye and your attention.
Unique by Topshop (above right) took inspiration
for its springsummer 2012 collection from ancient Egypt, with
bold gold Egyptian-style print and Egyptian-inspired accessories.
The use of Egyptian symbols to create crazy patterns gave the theme
a fresh run. The models had gold painted through their hair which
gave the relaxed streetwear-styled collection a more glamorous,
additional designers and video coverage among our daily reports.
