Central Saint Martins: Ba Fashion Graduate Show 2011 review. Womenswear tailoring.

A bunch of womenswear designers loosely grouped as tailoring: my favourites are Tracey Wong, Satoshi Kuwata and Khrystyna Fomenko. But check out also James Nolan, Mathilde le Gagneur, Li Wai Yin, Hannah Barr and Christopher Tai.

Womenswear tailoring at Central Saint Martins centred around a classical monochrome base exemplified by James Nolan, who opened the whole show with a high collared nanny wielding a giant old fashioned pram. Models with pin rolled hair were lent a strict air with shiny tight leather gloves.

Mathilde le Gagneur showed a floaty commercial collection of tie-waisted garments to traditional church music. I liked the twirly number at the end.

Li Wai Yin was all about the block coloured tailoring. Pointy hats and overlong sleeves emphasised the strong minimalist shapes.

Khrystyna Fomenko presented a strong and highly wearable collection based on golden and pastel shades with wide palazzo trousers and multi height hem lines. We did an interview with Khrystyna Fomenko back in 2009 – why not take a gander and see just how much her style has changed since then!

Hannah Barr showed flouncy pleated and backless numbers in lacy blues and coppery knits.

Tracey Wong incorporated jutting beaded ornamental panels onto pastel and black dresses of intriguing proportions.

Christopher Tai’s collection was a bizarre ensemble of loose fitting pieces and unflattering wired accessories that curled up the arm.

Satoshi Kuwata did ruched and draped pastels with interesting hem lines and button detailing. A very strong collection.
