LONDON FASHION WEEK SS15 SHOW REPORT: Hema Kaul

Hema Kaul's show took place in my favourite room in the Freemason's Hall, featuring a decadent marbled floor, bronze arches and stained glass windows. Entitled "La vie en rose - Life is Pink", the collection was an unabashed show of femininity.

Details included silk printed florals, sheer cascading tulle skirts, metallic fabrics and delicate lace embroidery. The classic make up and effortless quiff set off the girly tone perfectly - a really confident and self-assured collection. Looks like tulle is definitely in for SS15!

LONDON FASHION WEEK SS15 SHOW REPORT - Ong-Oaj Pairam #OOPSS15

I saw Ong-Oaj's show last season where his 50's inspired gowns paid homage to Ursula from the Little Mermaid, with badass bouffants, red lips and unexpected leather accents. I couldn't wait to see what was in store next for the young talented designer.

This season, I had the privilege to attend again and was ushered into a front row seat - always a nice surprise. The collection was inspired by Ong-Oaj's fragmented memories of growing up alongside his family's noodle factory in Nakhon Ratichasima, Thailand.

 

The collection was an explosion of pastel colour and tulle detailing, with structured jackets, pleated skirts and palazzo trousers lending an elegance to his eye-popping creations. I absolutely loved it!



The shoes were white with pastel flecks and perfectly complemented the collection, ranging from a classic court to a strappy knee high sandal.



Asian inspired fabrics and cuts brought the collection back to the Thai influence.



And finally: 2 showstopping ballgown dresses that brought gasps from the crowd.





Hope you enjoyed - more show reports coming up!

Love,
Geisha

LONDON FASHION WEEK SS15 SHOW REPORT - Busardi

LFW SS15 - BUSARDI "AIR" RUNWAY COLLECTION

The Busardi show took place in a beautiful drawing room in the depths of Mayfair. We met the lovely Kimberley Garner of Made in Chelsea fame and she was a total babe, chatting away happily and looking beaut in her sheer panelled dress.

 
 

The collection was entitled "Air" and drew inspiration from the incredibly diverse landscapes and microenvironments of South America, such as the smoking plunge pools of the Iguazu Falls and the golden pink sand deserts of Argentina.

 
 
 

The hair and makeup were by AOFM Pro and featured elegant updos with effortless flyaway hairs and an ethereal silver metallic eye. The models looked strong and fearlessly feminine.

 
 
 

The pieces were truly stunning, mixing layering and transparent panels with lace details, soft ostrich feathers and glacial applique and tulle adornments. The silver shoes, heavily encrusted ear cuffs and moulded silver necklaces accented the collection perfectly and made reference to the glacier-hewn fields of Patagonia.

 
 

The models all lined up on the stairwell after the show, giving us a chance to admire the spectacular detailing that went into these gowns. I fell in love with the finale piece, a showstopping minky grey dress with a sheer tulle skirt and hundreds of grey ostrich feathers layered around the shoulders of the cape.

 

Every piece truly red-carpet worthy.

Love,
Geisha
