photographer Douglas Rimington took his camera to some of the exhibits.
Brands we checked out include French Sole, known
for its ballet flatswith some lovely fashion-forward colours
for autumn. Bjørg jewellery, meanwhile, showed some lovely
pieces still inspired by Charles Darwins work on evolution.
Other accessories brands were there in
force: French label Aristide
showed its gloves; Antoni Burakowski and Alison Roberts Antoni
& Alison showed bags, wallets and purses. Feet Fairies showed
its shoes that could be folded into small pouches. We checked out
underwear from Yes Master, still spooky and inspired by Edgar Allan
Poe, while Brazelle showed some delightful bra clips that link on
to strapless bras (a good idea that eliminates visible bra straps).
Designers Michigan duo Erickson Beamon, Jane
Carr (with her signature prints), the award-winning Patrick Cox
and Nicholas Kirkwood, Amr Alis Body Amr, Irwin & Jordan,
French-born, London-based Bryce Aime were among the brands we rated
highly at the exhibition.
The exhibition also saw two sets of twins show
their labels: Felder & Felder, helmed by twin sisters Annette
and Daniela; and the colourful Tata-Naka, from identical twins Tamara
and Natasha Surgurladze of Georgia.
