"My knives are like a tongue. I love you I hate you," set the scene for Meadham Kirchhoff spring/summer 2010 show with the sound of rain falling, three big Philip Wiegard sculptures positioned down the runway and Anna Wintour sitting front row.
I love the folded effect of the boxy crinkled dresses and how although the shapes where hard they had a soft rhythm from the fluid of the colours throughout the collection.

Marios Schwab sent out a collection yesterday morning that, he explained, “split his story into three, and in doing so gives us what seems like an endless sequence of possible identities”.
“Draping is a nod towards fading romanticism; the classic structured tailoring reflects today’s austere surroundings; while pleating hints that the cold, minimal perception we have of the future,” went on Schwab in his show notes. and wow was the daring of this collection incredible, its so different yet in a really beautiful elegant way.

Todd Lynn certainly showed that strong statement shoulders weren't done yet his collection was full of incredible tailoring, with interesting twists of detail in the shapes I love every piece.

He
told us in his show notes that he was taking us east for spring/summer 2010, inspired as he was by Queen Tin-Hinan - a Tuareg heroine who reigned during the Fifth Century.

Better keep an eye out on these fresh new designers to the industry

There we were in the illustrious surroundings of the Guildhall - a place of lofty austerity in which we were made to put our bags through security machines and even asked to sanitise our hands on the way in - and all of a sudden he gave us four bridesmaids wearing transparent lace shifts in fuchsia, orange, black and green and then a pale purple single shouldered full length version for the bride. They wore huge matching pants but had never heard of a bra - and they walked with the kind of attitude that made you feel embarrassed to be wearing one yourself.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
