It was quite a show from Charlotta Actis Barone at the Fashion Mode show. The frosty makeup and huge lion mane locks had me step into Narnia for this enchanting display. In bold coloured and huge tulle skirts and ice-maiden dresses, the models strutted down the runway with drama.
I particularly loved the faux fur trims dotted about the collection from hoods to hand muffs to winter white stoles studded with pearlised poppers. The Aztec tattoo style bodysocks the models (and Barone herself) wore were an unexpected treat; and the finale dress was a winner –a sumptuous red strapless gown which tumbled into in a gorgeous fishtail.
Barone certainly knows how to put on a crowd pleasing catwalk, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for next season.
