Edda's patterns are a canvas - at times literally - for her fun and figurative broad-brush stroke designs which are digitally printed onto textiles. The result is graphic, bold and a whole lot of fun.
These are some of the words I frantically tapped into my iPhone notes during Fyodor Golan's stunning London Fashion Week presentation: 'tender, ferocious, glitchy, primal, diverse'. The words hit me in digital waves
It's pretty clear that the phenomenon of street style is here to stay. This Fashion Week I was out on the streets of London to scout for the best style, trends and why is the capital the most fashionable in the world. London Fashion Week might have ended but what a busy week it was.
I spoke with Rose de Borman about her hand-painted silk screen prints as she worked away, blending paints inspired by a nearby pots of flowers she had collected from her garden and brought in as colour inspiration for her prints.
Days full of fabulous shows, outrageous outfits on the front row and skeletal teenagers strutting down the runway with the garments hanging off of their tiny frames. Each year the nation are shocked with the images of the painfully thin models, however designers such as Victoria Beckham who is also famed for her waif like figure continue to use them.
It raises the bar high for other cities and at the same time pushes everyone to innovate. To be impactful and memorable, the collection itself is not enough. It is all about the universe you create around it. So what were the most impactful shows I had the chance to witness?
If fashion is a language, Ashish Gupta's Spring Summer 17 collection at London Fashion Week spoke of multi-cultural defiance in reaction to the post-Brexit toxic anti-immigrant sentiment and violence reverberating throughout Britain and more broadly, much of the western world.
I have put together styling ideas of what to wear to London Fashion Week for you to be able to make an outfit your own. I do hope you are able to take these ideas and make them into your own unique style.
'Fashion tech' and wearables are often described as solutions looking for a problem. The fashion industry is, paradoxically, resistant to change, while science and technology exist to pose and answer questions and catalyse change.
What makes a good design? What makes a great designer? Does it have anything to do with taste? Does it matter? The question I prefer to ask is how does the designer's work make me feel? What does it inspire in me? If the answer is nothing, then subjectively, it's not for me.
London Fashion Week might have ended but we got close and personal with the most stylish fashionistas during the week. They do say the best place to scout new styles and trends are at London Fashion Week.
As I mentioned in my post last season, London Fashion Week is usually something I love and loathe with equal intensity. However, this time round I absolutely loved everything about it, perhaps because I was more organised.
