BODYAMR autumn/winter 2011 collection at LFW

From Louise Redknapp in the front row to Amber Rose modelling; the BODYAMR autumn/winter 11/12 show was a star-studded affair.

Back stage Efi Davies directed the Toni&Guy Session Team to produce models with whimsical hair that was sleek at the front and dropped perfectly at the back. This design was done simply by using a round brush to blow dry then a dash of label.m professional hair care to finish; providing texture in all the right places. Make-up was flawless but dramatic with big red lips and sultry egyptian eyes.

The collection in itself was inspired by the middle east; and after the dramatic build up of violin concerto music the lights dimmed as police style flash lights (like the ones used to call Batman!) appeared circling the room. Models then started to protrude into the windy catwalk that was set-up via two rooms in the Vauxhall Fashion Scout venue as Moroccan-influenced music played.

From rich chocolate browns to cream and gold hues, mulberry and maroon, the colour spectrum switched adding teal, black, sun-set orange, silver, grey and mustard. Textures included jersey, satin, silk, velvet and beading with key pieces coming in floor length silk kaftan’s, black bolero jackets, Mongolian wool stole’s and jackets, low slung jersey v-neck tops with long sleeves, jersey turtle necks, and tops and dresses that incorporated diamante studding.

The highlight of the show however was a floor length see through black hooded dress; which doubled up as a veil. The model wore yellow studded diamante hot pants underneath; alongside this there was a navy chiffon flowing gown. Low-cut at the front with beaded detailing around the cleavage, but effortlessly glamorous; something like you would imagine Queen Rania of Jordan to wear to a Royal Engagement with family and friends.

To continue with the eastern theme models adorned Fez hats, chiffon neck scarves – which draped to the floor – and high collared necklaces and oversized jewellery.

This was definitely one of my favourite shows of London Fashion Week.
