David Koma LFW Mon 20th Sept 2010

This season David had moved away from his traditional metal clad garments and opted for a more wearable kind of fashion. A sense of serenity and peace washed over the audience as the soft pallets of yellow and pink glided down the runway in an effortlessly feminine way. David's first model stepped out onto the catwalk to the sound of Tchaikovsky's 'Swan Lake' which he also said was the inspiration for this seasons collection; the contrasting perceptions of a ballerina - the physically and emotionally strong woman in a fragile frame.

Hemlines kicked at the middle of thighs and the show opened with three fantastic variations of the skater style skirt hit the runway. Paired with more practical tops, you could envisage these stunning pieces being worn to an evening event, not only by the quirky youngsters but now also the more mature woman, still confident and comfortable in her skin.

Creating a stronger statement, python skin and embossed leather were added to sleek full length gowns. Raw python rouched belts also featured at the waists of David's 50s influenced dresses and body conscious silhouettes and are set to be a favourite with the starlets who love to wear David's clothes.
The designer's contrast of monochromatic black and white with powder yellow and pale pink was stunning and wowed in the delicate chiffons and organzas that were set against robust python skin, embossed leather and fine wool.
A stunning black number played with mind on every level forcing you to make that contrast between the harsh feel of leather or python and the floating chiffon that appeared as though it were being left behind in the models wake.
With amazing geometric knuckle dusters and architectural cuffs, as well shoes designed by Alain Quilinci, the show was styled to perfection. David has hit all the right notes with this collection and covered a broad spectrum of colours, styles and fabrics. He managed to wow the front row with the level of skill on show for a relatively new designer. This one certainly gets our seal of approval.
