What I wore: Dress – Stevie May (here)/ Boots – Alexander McQueen/ Bag – Arcadia/Sunglasses – Les Specs
What I saw: The Omer Asim Presentation – This was a super cool concept and presentation space at the Painting Rooms. This for me, was one of the most impressive shows as the models were fantastic! It was almost like walking through an art gallery rather than a fashion show. Live modelling is such an art form and it was such a great way to show off the collection. The designs were a little too masculine for my liking although I loved the fully monochrome use (or lack) of colour 😉
The Orla Keily Show – Such a fun show. Located at the stunning Florence Hall the scene was a set up as a crazy golf course so the models were strutting down an astroturf runway then picking up a club and having a go at a hole in one! The SS16 pieces were bright and playful and the show was clearly all about loose printed fabrics creating feminine shapes. Orla gave a nod to the 70’s with her a-line skirts and rompers but what set her apart from other 70’s inspired shows was her flamboyant use of bright pastels and abstract floral printed fabrics.
The Minki Cheng Presentation – This was one of my favourite presentations in terms of the SS16 garments. The colours were right up my street, neutral and monochrome tones with brief pops of colour and pattern. The clothes were cut so beautifully and I loved the distinctive detailing and use of silk fabrics. I had the opportunity to meet Minki herself which was great, she is a real sweetie! I will be heading down to the showroom soon to pick out some pieces from this collection, I can’t wait!
Stay tuned to hear all about day 3 😉
