London Fashion Week – HOLLY FULTON
Perhaps Holly Fulton was feeling a little nostalgic of summer when it came to designing her AW12 collection as neither the fabrics, nor the colour palette used for her offering was pragmatic for a typical British winter. Although, who ever said fashion has to be practical?
London Fashion Week – DAVID KOMA
David Koma is a master of flaunting the female form.

Dans La Vie – CLASH BEAUTY
Dans La Vie, spearheaded by Wasada University-graduate Rira Sugawara, is a particularly colour-conscious designing vehicle aimed at sucking in the work of contemporary music, fashion and art’s boldest statement makers – Andy Warhol, Madonna, McQueen – and spitting them back in collections no epilespy sufferer would go near. Sugawara showcased her AW12 collection ‘Clash Beauty’ […]

London Fashion Week – PPQ
