I love it when designers known for prim and proper designs do a 180 degree turnaround and present gothic inspired clothing. Emilia Wickstead did that for Fall.
Instagram was a buzz with pictures of Look 18, a vibrant pink long sleeve gown. The beautiful dress is among my favourites of the show.
I liked the unexpected roughness of the collection. It shows Emilia isn't just a one trick pony. There was leather and snakeskin prints but lace and florals.
Of course Emilia presented signature shapes. That was inevitable. I didn't mind that as it worked with the ladylike-but-not grunge vibe she achieved.
Another London designer with an astonishing collection.
