Fashionistas flock to alternative fashion week
Alternative London Fashion Week kicked off today (Monday), showcasing the creative talents from ten designers daily, Alternative Art’s annual fashion week collections are a must for anyone involved in the fashion industry.
The event is used as a spring-board to launch new talent and showcase the creative collections form emerging independent designers. Day one included a collection of highly accomplished designers, a few of which are included below.
Highlights of the shows included a fantastic collection by Beatrice K Newman. Beatrice recently showcased her woman’s wear collection at Graduate Fashion Week last summer and said: “my designs were based on Anastasia, the last women Tsar.”
Other collections which stood out included designs by Lucie Ashworth.
Lucie’s fetish wear was based on 1920’s glamour and decadence.
Olga Shishkina’s Futuristic metallic creations were simply awesome and although seemingly complex the models floated down the runway with effortless ease.
She will be a designer to watch for the future.
50’s inspired collections by Islington College were appreciated by the London crowd.
The collection named ‘Kitchen Sink Drama – Apron’s with 50’s flavour’ by City of Islington College has been used before but this collection was however well constructed throughout.
