In addition to the Burberry show I was able to make it to two other shows. Mark Fast and Louise Gray.
At Mark Fast the provocative crochets in his spring collection came in all colors. “We worked with yellow, orange and fuchsia and feathered printed neoprene to compose a tropical exotic surge of color.” Explained the British designer. One of the models was constantly getting her shoe caught in the long crochet dress and about to fall but she managed to walk the runway despite this difficulty. I’m guessing there was no practice run
Louise Gray’s collection was at the Topshop Show Space where many of the attendees were super excited to be there, mingle with each other before the show and show their strong support for this very quirky and exuberant British designer. Her collection had to be one of the most distinct I have ever seen. Gray’s signature is her mishmash of color, pattern and texture. “Its how my mother taught me to dress,” she said, “everything matches if you like it.” I think she is extremely creative and original but at the same time I cannot say that I would wear some of the pieces from this collection. Below are some of the photos I snapped during the shows yesterday.
