CJ Yao London Fashion Week SS16
CJ Yao presented a bold collection for SS16. With an overall street styling, the ensembles were layered with different materials and combined fringes, tassels and pleats, creating a truly interesting runway show. Many of the outfits featured a juxtaposition of materials with metallics paired with linens and cottons. The models added the extra edge, with unkept tresses and eye shadows in vibrant oranges and greens. Our personal favourites included a very preppy oversized cream jumper, edged with thick colour banding and paired with off beat metallic pleated skirt. The look was completed with sweatband headgear and black flats.

Maral Yazarloo’s SS16 collection has a distinct easts meets west flavour. Whilst remaining true to her Persian roots, she blends her heritage with a contemporary touch. The vibrantly coloured luxe materials of silk and satin, paired with tan suede boots and cutesy headwear, gave a festival vibe to the runway show. Whilst the traditional materials are heavily embroidered the overall styling is modern, making the collection very relevant in the modern world. One of the most extravagant pieces included a coat style dress with gold leaf trimming and heavily adorned headband.
Marko Mitanovski London Fashion Week SS16
True to form, Marko Mitanovski’s SS16 collection featured ghoulish compilations of black leather, jewel encrusted tunics and striking headgear. Perhaps a more accessible range of clothing when compared to his showcase in February at the Freemasons Hall, which saw models strike the catwalk in black paint and heavy facial jewels, our favourite ensemble featured a gothic black cape paired with lace up black stockings. Whilst there is no understatement in his latest offering, a closer look at the garments will reveal hands and faces sculptured into the clothing, completing this gothic and sometimes creepy parade.
