Hello all! It’s Leigh here, ready to share my enthusiasm for how absolutely fantastic the fashion scene is out here in London-town. With the conclusion of London Fashion week, I can no longer keep my excitement in for how absolutely brilliant all of the collections were for autumn/winter 2011-12.
To no surprise, Vivienne Westwood has remained loyal to the fantastic eccentricities behind her London name, yet again creating one large masterpiece out of her Women’s RTW Red Label collection. Apparently Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland inspired her, but Westwood’s translation of its whimsical characters is SO much more abstract and interesting. With a combination of animal prints, checkers, plaids, argyle, a wide array of colour and make up literally splashed onto the models faces, her autumn/winter collection showed absolute genius and inspiration- to me at least!
I’ll admit, some of the combinations made the models simply look like a posh-homeless cult, while others looked like royalty pulled out of a Picasso painting with oversized, tilted crowns (and I’d like to add- made out of their hair) and extravagant cape-coats with vibrant colours. However, all seemed to share the Joker look from Batman with clownish make-up: one painted on raised eyebrow and smeared lip colour.
Check out the detail put into each outfit- she didn’t miss a beat from head-to-toe!
