It’s that time again when press, buyers, fashionistas and just plain ol' wannabes flock to Somerset House to catch a glimpse of the latest trends shimmying down the runway. Of course we got into vogue mode and headed down to the temporary fashion house, to get in on some of the action, too.
First out, Caroline Charles, who showcased an appealing collection which epitomized elegance, with a nice off-beat bridal finish.
Next, was Corrie Nielson's show. This designer is heavly influenced by the Elizabethan period as well as 1940s-50s French Haute Couture era. The inspiration was visible in the showcasing of her latest collection, as, "ice queens" strutted their stuff down the catwalk in navy blue, shaped and fitted, duchess-inspired pieces.
And saving the best for last; that would be Aminaka Wilmont’s “Totem” collection; the mystique of models draped in bold, edgy clothing.
All in all, it was a pleasant day out, without any controversy or outlandish behaviour to spread through the grapevine. Just fashion. And there's more where that came from.
