Once again Malan Breton showcased an extremely strong and breathtaking collection inspired by a supernatural theme at London Fashion Week. The formalwear pieces had glittered flower prints in a silver and sheer baby blue colour and other pieces had waves of navy, bright mustard, black and shocking red running throughout the collection with accents of pastel colours.
The room was filled with an eagerness and anticipation from the impressive previous seasons Malan has presented for the industry. The garments revealed a quality of strength and power and involved, interesting shapes and textures from floor length hemlines, fishtail silhouettes, sweetheart necklines and flared trousers.
Each look was a standout look that challenged the forms of womenswear and menswear and failed to bore anyone. The mythological take on supernatural was intensely present and carried a show-stopping elegance and fierceness that people loved to watch. Key items in the collection was a cream long PVC coat which tied at the waist, a floor length mustard fishtail skirt, also PVC which had layered shapes to create the illusion of scales, printed blazer blouses to show off another element of sexy that Malan always channels and oversized double-breasted jackets for the men, which showed through in an interesting print.
Malan Breton knows how to design around the male and female frame and create alarming pieces that will surely remain unforgettable.
Swiss fashion house Rohmir showcased their SS18 collection at London Fashion Week and what a show it was.
Beautifully crafted gowns graced the catwalk in what you can only describe as elegant. White lace, sheer see-through tops and floral printed garments really represented the feminine silhouette. The models were beautifully dolled up and accessorised with sparkling diamonds and body chains.
Serenaded by a beautiful opera singer who also was in a glamorous Rohmir gown, with some of the models tastefully dancing down the catwalk really made all the difference to keep the attendees entertained.
With the models going down the catwalk hand in hand with their mini-mes that only added more aww’s to the show it was very mummy and me, but in the most spectacular way you can imagine. It was all so sweet and playful as the models greeted each other as they passed. And an amazing finale where the models walked and stopped so you could get a better and closer look to the collection.
Rohmir really put on a show that would make you want to know what they have in store for next season.

Paul Costelloe showcased his amazing Spring/Summer 2018 collections at the Waldorf. Following his inspiration of femininity. Costelloe put on a fantastic show and presentation.
From spring flounce coats in silk jacquard to summer-weight wool and appliquéd cotton, soft pastel colours including an exclusive chequer-board print designed by William Costelloe, which added a nice tropical mix. The beautiful Waldorf ballroom was the perfect location to set the tone for the collection, a wonderful catwalk show followed by a presentation where the models engaged with laughs, selfies, and sweets. A fun and flirty feel made all the difference for the attendees to have a great time.
With the twiggy inspired make- up, romantic choice of music and props not only did Costelloe produce a collection every woman could wish for but also showcased great craftsmanship in his 100% pure Irish linen summery men’s suits.
With a hint of pastel pink and red latex to add some sexy to it, what was really a beautiful end to the catwalk show was the stunning Vogue Williams in a long statement pink dress. The designer garment also featured a fitted waist with a thigh-skimming shorter hem at the front followed by a long trail.
In his own words, Costelloe describes this SS/18 collection as – “It’s Paris, Washington and a touch of day-dream allure”, and that we can say it defiantly was.
