Helen Lawrence // Spring 2015 //

Helen Lawrence first came on my radar when she presented as apart of Fashion East for Fall 2014 during London Fashion Week. She presented alongside Louise Alsop and Ashley Williams. Helen was undoubtedly my favourite. I did really like the others but there was something about Helen’s creations that I loved. Helen gained a BA in Textiles at the Chelsea College of Art and Design and an MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins. The well learned designer is destined for great things.
For Spring 2015 Helen continued to show for Fashion East. I was yet again mesmerised by her collection. Helen’s girl is ‘normal’ but with ‘a strange curiosity’. That idea was emulated into the beautiful yet peculiar clothing. One signature piece of Helen’s collections is the wobbly shapes. This is my favourite aspect of the collections. It’s so quirky and interesting to gawk at. 
Latex and wool were a stark contrast but were perfectly juxtaposed. The colours also enhanced this effect. Bubblegum pink, dusty rose, green, pale blue, black and white and yellow were all on Helen’s colour palette for Spring 2015. Look 16 was my favourite. A halter neck sports bra and a matching micro mini wool skirt were detailed with wobbly shaped latex panelling. The latex was both under and over the top and skirt. 

This was a collection. I adored every look from start to finish and cannot wait to see what she has in store for us for Fall 2015.
