Classy granny styles & bold dresses bring LFW curtain down

Feb '13
Classy, timeless, evergreen ladylike creations, which never cease to entice women of all ages and generations, were the flavour of the final day of London Fashion Week (LFW), which was wrapped up by a series of talented designers presenting a variety of avant-garde collections.
 
Dublin-born designer of mixed origins Simone Rocha drew inspiration from the dressing styles of her Irish granny Margaret Gleeson and Chinese grandmother Cecilia Rocha to create her latest Autumn/Winter 2013 line. Rekindling nostalgia with a fresher touch, the bubble gum and powdery pink collection featured elegant veils, dropped waist dresses, apron-styled skirts, white shirts with lemon hued collars and cap sleeved cropped tops.
 
Belgrade-born Roksanda Ilincic painted a ghostly scene by taking inspirations from the fairy tales of haunted girls and virginal brides in her show at LFW. Showcasing furs, treated lace, PVC and neoprene materials in abundance, the bewitching range included firm and lustrous overcoats, full skirts, strapless tops and furry collared capes in shades of sweet pink, brown, nude and neon.
 
Indian designer Ashish Gupta featured a streetwear influenced collection enriched with sequins, checks and hound’s-tooth patterns. The glamorous line included slip dresses, sparkling blanket ponchos, sweatshirts, floor-length gowns and slouchy trousers in a muted palette of grey, brown, monochromes along with occasional dashes of orange and yellow.
 
Gothic architectural structures dominated Chinese designer Haizhen Wang’s collection which capped off the final day of LFW. The 2012 fashion fringe winner brought the curtain down with a quirkiness infused original line featuring bold and versatile garments made of leather, Italian wool and crocodile skin textures. The collection included tailored jackets, tight-fitting trousers, strappy back tops and V-neck black gowns.
