It's been over a week since LFW took place in The Grand Connaught Rooms showcasing various S/S14 collections by amazing designers. If you were not there, I'll give you a quick round up of some of the collections.
From trash the wedding dress to royal halo, Amis Designs introduced class in silk, frills and jewelled accessories to gothic with the use of lace and maroon colour (centre picture). Some of the designs were full body lace leotards with a vertebrae design at the back. I saw each design to be creatively edgy with an elegant twist.
Each style spoke for itself, Cassandra Amore collection showcased bodycon style dresses, embellished with beaded rope embroidery. I noticed some of the outfits were styled with decorated corsets, showing off the feminine figure.
De Leon by Ricardo Ramos
A touch of ancient tradition and body painting art were visible in De Leon by Ricardo Ramos, with added Tribalistic patterns and fine leather. His collection is impressive, eye-catching , bold and suitable for everyday wear.
Debby African Stitches
Vibrant colours, fine details and patterns, Debby African Stitches brought the African style with use of richly printed fabrics. The collection showed an array of colours that's stood out brightly with a classic twist.
House of Caramel Jones
The womanly allure: from bright white to the palest petal pinks, the House of Caramel Jones drenched their collection in a flattering way with pretty colours. From head to toe the models gave off a warm vibe.
Bloom beautifully in floral prints. This line introduced elegant tailoring in blissful colours. Kitty Ferreira used ethical sustainable upside fabrics and eco hand dye to create such fascinating prints.
Unlike the colourful dresses that were seen on the catwalk, Ocansey Bianchi brought the versatility in denim back with the use of zips and different denim shades. Futuristic double denim in style, suitable for any shape and any taste.
That was a quick run through of some of the collections on show. Would you wear any of the collections above? Were you at the show? I'd love to know your thoughts.
