Bernard Chandran SS15
Bernard Chandran gave us a mix of sporty inspired neon jackets, shorts and boxy dresses during his runway show, showing off his talent for creating wearable, fashion forward pieces. Starting off the show in bright whites he then brought out the neon’s, spots and stripes giving us a hint towards the 60’s. Shapes were kept minimal apart from the odd patterned flowing maxi and models hair remained slicked back into a ponytail to compliment this. Make up was refreshingly fresh faced with dewy skin and pink lips.
Dora Abodi SS15
A dark mix of embellishment, metallic and print was presented to us at the Dora Abodi show and we couldn’t help falling for its gothic charm. Feathers, sequins and lace adorned maxi and midi dress to create a look fit for a Disney villain, indeed there was more than a hint of Maleficent with the prized look including a pair of dark black horns protruding from the models head to complete the monochrome feathered outfit. Bomber jackets impressed in eye catching silvers and golds and one particular lace and gold maxi dress made the audience gasp with delight. Hair was kept jet black and slicked to the scalp to create a helmet like look, make up was all dark eyes and attitude. Images by Anna Michell.
Keiko Nishiyama SS15
Ah an old Kit favourite. Eagle eyed readers will remember we featured Tokyo born Keiko in our very first issue and have since been desperate to see what she has been up to. Not to be disappointed Keiko has added to her collection of floral print coats, skirts and tights and branched out to include sea urchin print and dipping her toe into the millinery world creating the ultra fantasy head pieces you see above.

Gyo Yuni Kimchoe S/S 15
‘Respect of life and nature’ was the message at the Gyo Yuni Kimchoe show demonstrated through the couples use of eco friendly boxy coats, skirts and jackets. In the show room we were able to get a closer look at the designs and fell in love with the use floral patterns and over sized pockets to create a exaggerated take on gardener chic.
