Both sponsored by Topshop New Gen these talented designers showed together this morning at the BFC catwalk show space at Somerset House, London.
As one of the first shows of the day everybody squeezed into the tightly packed tent to watch both designers: David Koma started with models launching onto the catwalk as Samantha Cameron watched on. The collection – mainly black leather – showed some interesting new shapes with circles cut out of skirts, dresses and tops to emphasise colours hidden underneath or bare skin.
Models adorned sleek pony tails with black ribbons around the head, and barely there make-up (as seen at a few shows already this weekend), and as the combination of leather and wool was on show Koma also threw in some muted metallics mixed with red leather knee-high boots. There was also spurges of pink and green and a fabulous wool maxi coat with cinched leather belt. Dashes of electric blue fur stood out from the sides of models dresses, and towards the end of the show most pieces of clothing adorned a primary colour fur sphere pompom ball somewhere on the body. It was fun and different and made everyone stand and take note.
Once the lights had dimmed once more it was then Holly Fulton’s turn to take centre stage. Apart from two models not being able to walk tall in their Louboutin’s (which they took straight off and carried on bare-foot), everything else ran smoothly. Fulton’s look was more grown-up with a super fun edge that came courtesy of her silk lip print billowed trousers and maxi dress with leather applique on top.
There was also a selection of large feather frou frou style dresses but the most shock surprise was the sophisticated evening wear complete with oversized perplex necklaces and earrings that sparkled in the light. A beige studded skirt was another highlight and digital prints also came into the mix. Colours varied from mint green to purples, navy and black. This collection really did have it all.
