Whilst at the
Clothes Show Live 2014
As we get ready for next year’s fabulous fashion events, we popped into Clothes Show Live this week for style inspiration.
The colourful show took us on a theatrical journey through the United States, starting in New York with these oversized silhouettes in bold block colours.
Stylists went big on patterns and accessorised playfully with wide brimmed hats and statement pumps, which was ideal for the young audience at the show.
Many of the looks had a 90s twist, with leggings, beanie hats and pleather making an appearance – very Neneh Cherry!
Next, we headed off to Studio 54, where metallic fabrics, lace and embellished fabrics took centre stage as the models danced to a disco soundtrack. An uplifting scene that really put us in the mood for party season.
In a pleasant departure from the rest of the show, Serbain designer Ana Ljubinkovic showed off some retro inspired designs that were more than a little reminiscent of Clueless.
Whilst at the show we were also lucky enough to catch a collection being shown by Fyodor Golan on the Olympus Pen designer catwalk, which was a smaller stage showcasing emerging design talent.
Once again, there were echoes of 90s style with baseball caps, DM style boots and culottes… who’d have ever thought we’d see those again?!
This stage was presented by legendary fashion expert Hilary Alexander, who was there to champion new talent.
Although we attended on the last day of the event, it was heaving with keen fashion fans and we took away lots of fashion ideas and staging concepts which will certainly feed our event work next year. Onwards and upwards!
