The hottest ticket at London Fashion Week was Christopher Kane and we were there (and almost in the front row!). Jacqueline Farrell, head of school for fashion and textiles and Theresa Lindsay, senior fashion and textiles lecturer, attended the show this morning, Monday 10 February 2014.
Today's show was a huge hit and here is our show report.
Jacqueline Farrell’s show report:
The show was fantastic. We had the most amazing seats and saw every detail. The key trend was a monochrome palette in blacks, charcoals, silver grey and pinks. The focus was on textural surface with fairly simple silhouettes.
Stand out pieces included sculptural sleeve details on narrow shift dresses, intricate embroidered dresses woven through with contrasting ribbons and gathered ruffles inset into seams of puff skirts to create a 'bell' silhouette. There was lots of fine black PVC used in panels with wool. There was a distinct menswear tailoring story coming through too with sculptural wool coats with diamanté beading in soft pink. And just to make sure we stay warm fur trims on everything from dresses to coats.
