Prim and proper, perhaps too mature for my underdeveloped self, but I imagine perfect for middle aged women or ladies in the royal family to be personally dressed by granny the Queen. One thing I noticed was that the models were gorgeous, and it looked as though they were made to smile on the catwalk, rare and surprisingly refreshing. (Well, I believe those pretty faces were made for smiling!)

Freemasons’ Hall; 14:15 Friday 19th

David Koma

Zig zags across the body and sharp tailoring throughout. Last season I remember him doing a lot of embellishments onto a plain canvas (LBD), this time he seems to have played with the canvas itself. (Although I do love the zip fastener embellishments swirling and creating sharp angles…)

Sorry for the half photos, this was the show where we waited so long and when I barely got in the models were already spilled out onto the runway. Thank God for zoom-lens or else there would’ve been a forest of heads, and then the catwalk, maybe. There were still so many people behind me if I remember correctly and they closed their doors right after I’d gone in. Can’t imagine what kind of a disappointment that’d have been for those behind me. Calling for better organization please.

Something about the starting piece set the mood of a 1950s silent film for the entire show… then the pieces seemed to become more contemporary towards the end. Particularly loved the fluid draping and the layering of patterns on top of the drapes (4th photo).

BLA. I’m so knackered, spent the entire day on heels running back and forth shows; post about the crowd & scene tomorrow!
