When most people think Fairytales, they think Cinderella and her Prince Charming, Snow White, Rapunzel, and Sleeping Beauty, wearing the most beautiful floral and frilly gowns. But when you think Fairytales at John Rocha, it may just be as dreary as when the Evil Witch decides to poison Snow White. As ruffles and frills get dyed a gloomy black or a bloody red. A doily dress perfectly matches the Wicked Witch of the West, color wise. Flowers embellish a puffy LBD.
As London Fashion Week reaches an end, I dedicate this Look of the Week Wednesday to photos of some of the Best Moments from London’s Fall 2013 Fashion Week 7 months back. Just as I did for New York, I will be dedicating the next few Look of the Weeks and Throwback Thrusdays to Best Moments from Fall 2013 Fashion Week. Make sure to tell me your Favorite Moments from Fall 2013 Fashion Week in the comments.
For Spring, Simone Rocha gives Classy and Ladylike styles, a Fun and Edgy twist. In a way, mixing the edgy and feminine styles showed off by the people of Great Britain. Rocha begins her collection, with Beautiful LBDs with ruffles of many styles, which have been seen a lot throughout London and New York Fashion Week. As designers are really putting their own zests on Traditonal feminine dresses.
Rocha even puts cutouts into her LBDs for a really edgy and bold feel. The models are also sporting pearl and lace chokers, and very feminine dresses towards the end, really making me think of Coco Chanel, with a more Marie Antoinette, Victorian like twist.
For Spring, L ‘Wren Scott takes inspiration from China for her collection. With each of the models sporting short black hair wigs, and high wedges. Scott designs many of the pieces in the Beautiful fabric, seen on a lot of the Kimonos. Some of the models even carry the delicate lace umbrellas, which I had always been dying to have since I was little. And the headpieces?!! Just Beautiful.
The thing that I loved most about the collection though, is that every single was belted or tied at the waist, in a very Chinese fashion inspired way. Giving every look that instant Hourglass shape, definitely something that will flatter pretty much every women.
I’ve always thought that some of the best shows each season come from London Fashion Week! As John Rocha designs a very Feminine and Romantic collection. The collection began with a Beautiful array of feminine floral print dresses, paired with knitted hats in the Chic cage style that many designers have been seeming to take on this season.
John Rocha then switches up the collection, from floral printed dresses, to an array of head to toe white ensembles, and then Black. Rocha still keeps the feminine vibe, using lace, sheer nylon fabrics, and of course lots of ruffles.
