Holly Fulton LFW Mon Sept 20th 2010

In there Louboutin heels and with softly bouncing curls, the models of the Holly Fulton show strutted onto the catwalk to be faced by a bunch of the worlds fashion elite picking there jaws up from the floor. It was a show stopping collection with some of the best pieces we have seen from the designer in the four seasons she has been showing at London Fashion Week. Holly’s looks were teamed with her usual art deco inspired accessories, but this season it felt as though the designer had moved forward as far as texture and cut was concerned.

The show opened with a burst of colour (what less could we expect from Ms. Fulton!) with a giraffe print top and tasselled skirt which moved perfectly under the glare of lights and sweep of other models grazing past; a gravity defying earrings and a matching bracelet completed the ensemble perfectly. High waisted, wide leg trousers fall gracefully at the models side as the elegant fabric obeyed with every step on the runway sparking a frenzy of excitement when the graphic print, cascading down the side of the legs passed the fashion pack.

Small suitcase style bags and printed swimsuits got us in the mood for glamorous poolside bathing in hot and exotic far off places. The feeling was continued through into the bright yellows, blues and corals that were scattered throughout the show, always with a dedicate crystal embellishment or tassel fringe to polish off the look.

A new depth was explored in Holly’s collection this season. The use of pony skin was introduced, worked beautifully into a sharp pencil skirt paired with a white tank and statement jewellery. In addition, hints of snake skin were brought forward and updated from her AW10 collection to reflect the bright colours of summer.

The favourite piece of the whole collection however was the patent yellow skater skirt dress, a trend which is being carried forward from this season, but given a serious summer update. The laser cut shapes and stiffness of the fabric made for an origami style work of art rather than an evening dress.

Rounding things of nicely with a hint of sparkle were crystal embellishments which took on the form of clouds and were placed onto more relaxed garment shapes. Centre stage was a pallet of soft powdery tones, a new edges to the sometimes harsh graphic prints we are used to. These statement piece were wearable and transitional making them cute pieces that could soon have a cult following.
