Julien Macdonald knows how to put on a show. The Welsh native brings extravagantly wearable glamour to London Fashion Week. For his Fall 2015 show , held at the British Foreign and Commonwealth Offices right around the corner from 10 Downing Street, he had many British socialites and celebrities sit front row. Members of manufactured pop group The Saturdays - Rochelle Humes and Vanessa White - were in attendance. Aristocratic DJ with a devil-may-care attitude Lady Mary Charteris, online phenomenon Tanya Burr, Tamara Ecclestone (pulling a Kim K by bringing her infant daughter) and fashionably late Lizzie Cundy also attended.
His traverse through the ostentatiously opulent red carpet glamour continued this season. Leather, PVC, lace, jewel tones all enriched the runway. Micro mini party dresses, floor sweeping gowns, fringe, Chinoiserie, cut-outs. It was all overtly glamourous - that is the main description I’d stamp the collection with. Taylor Swift borrowed the emerald green dress with a centre split and lace detailing for the Elle Style Awards subsequently. Kim Kardashian nabbed a eyeleted jumpsuit for the BRIT Awards. Many stylists will have placed dibs on sexy outfits for their clients.
The ruby, sapphire, emerald and onyx numbers were gorgeous - but nothing could top the slew pink topaz looks. Look 12 was a personal favourite. The sleeveless micro-mini featured black lace details and sheer side panels. The Chinoiserie inspired dress was a stellar outing. The model, dispatched from backstage with gothic inspired make-up and slicked back hair, stormed the runway in point toe heels with ankle straps. The whole look was to die for.
Julien Macdonald knows how to put on a show. And that’s one of his specialities. His rigour when making the seductively bewitching is second to none. Beautiful clothes, beautiful front row. Everything was beautiful. From the setting, to the Julien Macdonald wearing socialites, the clothes presented. The unabridged charisma is always captivating. Fall 2015 - the same.
