Pam Hogg Freemason’s Hall SS16 London Fashion Week
From a designer favoured by Vivienne Westwood, Lady Gaga and Beyonce, Pam Hogg’s theatrical and eccentric SS16 showcase accentuated everything we love about British fashion. Kicking off with a nod to Ziggy Stardust, the collection had an androgynous appeal, combining gold metallics, vibrant colours and fabulous fringing. We particularly loved the catsuit with low plunging V neck line and metallic gold platforms. Continuing with the theme of British fashion from a bygone era, the second half of the show had a distinct pearly king and queen vibe. Adorned with studs rather than pearls we adored the white pinafore with A-line skirt finished off with the “H” emblem.
Ashley Isham Freemanson’s Hall SS16 London Fashion Week
The Ashley Isham show commenced to the high pitch soundtrack of operatic warbling and girlish shrieks. Normally known for his strong tailoring, Ashley Isham opened his SS16 collection with a stream of scantily clad male models. Proving that less is sometimes more, the minimal bold prints seemed to get a thumbs up from the crowd. Moving forward into the extensive female collection, many of the colours and patterns played homage to the 1950s era, whilst the cut of the outfits were very eclectic with floral hot pants and flirtatious hems. In the second half of the collection there was an underlying tribal theme accompanied by metallic interludes. What were the highlights? Too many to pick really but we cannot forget the outlandish headgear. From fashion visors adorned with appliqués, spinning windmills and silhouettes reminiscent of the Statue of Liberty.
Clio Peppiat - The Vinyl Factory SS16 London Fashion Week 2015
Usually renowned for her love of intricate and playful designs, Clio Peppiatt’s SS16 contribution sees a departure into a more sophisticated dimension. Her show opened with a largely monochrome parade of 60’s inspired geometric ensembles. In recognition of her love for vibrant colour palettes, the second half of the show revealed boldly cut feminine designs, highlighted with a striking neon yellow, orange or pink. Her show was completed with an array of fluid dresses, nipped in at the waist and flowing round the ankles.
