London Fashion Week: House of Holland SS14

Last Friday marked the beginning of London Fashion Week with an array of shows from Todd Lynn to Holly Fulton to Mulberry. British designers never hold back or downsize creativity, and this year was no exception. British fashion is never afraid to be bigger or bolder with prints, colours or designers and one designer that excells in breaking tradition is Henry Holland with his House of Holland Collections. This year in particular I was very excited to see his designs and knew before even I looked at them that I would dedicate this post to his show. As an Event Management graduate, Fashion Week inspires me through various different forms other thean fashion, from the lighting to the backdrops and of course, the invitations, it is an inspiring season to say the least. Henry Holland is infamous for bringing bolder prints and colours than other designers, and this show resembled the "50's pinup girl" vibe with a hint of rebellion.

Everything about this show was very flirty, with the lighting and bright colouring, with an edginess which came to life through the stick on tattoos worn on the models. The Lilac theme for the runway brought the summer theme to life which complimented the mexican vibe. I have two favourite looks from this show, one of which is pictured above, the coral shift dress with segmented embellishment. 

My second favourite look from this show is the matching lilac silk crop top and matching trousers. I find this print very playful and fun, and thr print itself is quiet oriental which I havnt seen much of lately, which shows the diversity of the brand. Below are more images from his show which took place on Saturady 14th Sept in London. 

Until next time,
