Wearable. Wonderful. WANTABLE.

 Quick flight back to London to witness the talent of tomorrow, Graduate Fashion Week.

I was  lucky enough to get tickets to watch the Edinburgh College of Art fashion show.
Truly inspiring.

One of the highlights was Jacob Birge.  A visual display of escapism. Futurism/armour/Sci-fi. I couldn’t help but think of McQueen’s Aliens of S/S 2010. While his was about aquatic, underwater creatures Jacob focused on dark, structured minimalism. A modern approach to armory, beautifully constructed. 
I can imagine Daphne Guinness rocking this look perfectly.

 But who could forget EVA NG……what a perfect name to start with!
Her collection balanced the art of tailoring with drape and the results were stunning. A modern Roland Mouret mixed with the sexy aesthetic of Gucci. A name to remember and look out for.

 But which designer would I buy from now? That would have to be Lyndsay McNeill. More like watching London or New York Fashion Week than Graduate. Her collection focused on soft relaxed tailoring. A modern working womans wardrobe. Think Chloe with a hint of Paul Smith. 
Wearable. Wonderful. WANTABLE. 

(…..Lyndsay? If you ever read this I want to pre order the white/cream coat. No words!)
