The Transylvanian designer showed her new collection at Freemasons Hall during London Fashion Week September 2014.

Dora Abodi was a new name to me. She founded her label in 2009 in Hungary and currently divides her time between Milan and Budapest. I was pleased to note that she doesn’t work with fur and only uses materials from an ethical origin, working with craftspeople to achieve a fine finish on garments and accessories.

I loved the cardboard cut out invitation to this show (not enough interesting invites in these days of austerity…) which was covered in graphic photo generated patterns that appeared on a series of belted dresses, and panelled crop tops worn with flared skirts. She’s obviously a fan of Jonathan Saunders, Belle Sauvage and kin, but gave this collection a gothic spice of its own with slick black mullets, dark eyes and swishing curved embellishments reminiscent of birds wings. The show closed with a stunning ensemble that would not be out of place as inspiration for my 10th anniversary open brief, calling to mind animal spirits and shamans.
