Vivienne stuck to her Britishness... the collection was innovative, creative and had loads of colours. I loooove the entire collection so pardon me if I post too many pictures. Below are pictures of Vivienne Westwood's 'Alice in Wonderland' inspired autumn/winter 2011 catwalk show at London Fashion Week.
The next designer we love is Osman Yousefzada: I wrote a paper about him in one of my fashion marketing classes. Yousefzada is a British designer of Afghan descent. He started his career as a banker but left to pursue his dream of being a designer, and funded his mini collection called 'Imperial' which was widely received. Yousefzada's clothes are precise, and well tailored with soft draping. He is inspired by ethnicity and ancient cultures. In this fall RTW 2011 collection, he explored his Afghan heritage with kaftan- like looks.
Matthew Williamson: is a British designer born in Manchester England. His collections often have Indian influences. He worked in India for the clothing store Monsoon, and I love me some Monsoon so obviously, the clothes that I like in this collection are the Indian/Monsoon looking outfits.
Sass and Bide: is one of Australia's most prominent international and contemporary street-and pop culture-inspired women’s fashion labels. Fans of the label are Sex And The City lead actress, Sarah Jessica Parker and, in more recent times, Madonna and Beyonce.
The label was founded in the late 1990s by Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke. They started by selling customised jeans in a stall on London's Portobello Road Market. Motivated by a love of vintage clothing and markets, they modified jeans purchased from retail outlets, to meet their own tastes in fashion.
This fall/autumn collection is called 'Boogie and the history maker' with clashing prints and (my favourites) African inspired colour and tribal aesthetics.
