Victorian biologist and botanical artist Marianne North served as Erdem Moralioglu’s inspiration for Spring 2015. What a marvellous collection it was. This was his best collection to date, the best collection of the week, and the collection that bagged him the British Fashion Award for Best Womenswear Designs
The showspace was a black boardwalk lined with luscious foliage. Erdem, like Mary Katrantzou, is ever evolving from when they first broke on to the fashion scene. The Erdem girl is harder edged than she was a few years ago. There is a sexiness exuded by the clothes this season that is more noticeable than in previous collections.
At the end we were treated to 7 fabulous gowns Erdem style. I’m expecting to see Michelle Dockery at the Golden Globes or SAG Awards in one of these stunning numbers. Look 34 perhaps. There was an unexpected appearance of plumage, which was welcomed in open arms.
The best collection of London Fashion Week. Everything about this was wonderful.
