Welcome to the fourth instalment of Fashioneyesta brining you the creme of the crop for this years London Fashion Week. Day 4 had a variety of designers all very different in their collections, but two designers in particular caught my eye today. Read on to find out who they are…
Fashion designer Ashish Gupta has been designing since 2001 and many of his designs are focused on creating fun sporty pieces that speak street style and creativity. This year is no acceptation, with many of his catwalk pieces presenting flamboyant sportswear inspired pieces in colours of pinks, whites and grey. However, the pieces that really appealed to me were his urban fairytale pieces, that infuse femininity and sequins to create a glittering cocktail of Street Princess!
Look One: Model is wearing white platform heeled sneaker style shoes with a long white ballet style skirt in a soft tule material with sequin embellishment combined with a white sequin detailed jersey top. Cinderella you will strut down the strand and go to the ball!
Look Two: Model is wearing a pair of platform heeled white sneakers with a rose pink ballet skirt dress, the skirt is detailed with gold sequins and the bodice is similarly detailed. This dress rather reminds me of what I would have adorned during my fancy dress sessions as a child, it is a very endearing collection and one that I am particularly fond of.
Mother of Pearl
Founded by Maia Norman-a fashion enthusiast and sportswomen, Mother of Pearl is a brand that is about promoting the lifestyles of women by making a variety of fashion pieces that are accessible to different women. This is a brand that is dictated by lifestyle and preferences, as opposed to high fashion. This is one of the key reasons why I personally enjoy viewing Mother of Pearl’s collections, as accessibility is key to any successful fashionista. Below are some of my favourites from the catwalk…
Look One: Model is wearing a simple high necked white shirt with touched detailing to the neckline and 3/4 length sleeves. Teamed with a maxi skirt in white with a burgundy ornate paisley print and finished off with a large sporty bag.
Look Two: Model is wearing gold platform heeled loafers with gold socks and a a line dress with ruche detailing to the collar and waistline. The colour is an ombre affect in rust red with begins at the hem in a lighter shade and finishes at the neckline in a darker one. It also features a combination of floral prints one of a light coloured tulip print at the hem and a darker coloured sunflower print from above the hem up to the neckline.
Look Three: Model is wearing a pair of black platform heeled loafers with white and blue paisley pattern on the front along with nude coloured socks. Along with a longline dress with batwing sleeves and a rounded neckline which features a deep blue paisley print. This is a great example of the style of dresses I predict we shall begin to see on the high streets and blue is one of the most prominent colours that has been featured by the designers for the upcoming season.
So, for today I bid you all my dear readers adieu and join me tomorrow for my verdict on Day 5!
