Confidence Models, pharmacy in conjunction with Random Magazine, viagra 40mg hosted a LFW after-party on Saturday night, to showcase three up-and-coming designers who had graduated this year.
Hosted at the Hoxton Pony, Shoreditch’s latest (s)wanky late bar, at first it seemed like it was going to be a bit of a non-event. I arrived early to stand a better chance of getting in – the dress code was pretty strict – and once in there I managed to fight my way past the other seven people and get to the free cocktails.
Pretty quickly though, the venue filled up nicely with very fashionable, incredibly good looking types. With the berry cocktails flowing and a good few faces to look at, the event was shaping up to be a good ‘un.

Almost out of nowhere appeared two frighteningly tall models wearing fantastic graphic-print outfits. One, a maxi-dress with billowing sleeves, featured bold colours of red and blue with a childlike bird illustration. The other was a hooded jump-suit featuring a similar style of illustration and even more playful colours.

I caught up with the designer – the squeezable Pauline Nakiwala, respendent in a sequinned number and fluro eye-shadow. A recent Ravensbourne graduate, she was delighted to be featured at the event.

“I draw inspiration from my childhood,” she told me. “I love playful illustrations and bright colours.” I agree. I express that it’s great to see designers who are so confident with colour. “I love colour!” she shouts. I ask her what she plans to do next. “I don’t know, it’s tough,” she relents. I agree, again. “I’d like to continue working with print. I’d love to design prints for an established designer.” I ask her who. “Vivienne Westwood would be a dream!” she exhales.
Pauline worked with high street designers during her degree. “I think I got more experience by working at that level,” she explains. Yet again, I agree, and I offer that when I was interning, the value of experience at smaller publications was so much more rewarding. “It may sound strange,” she finishes, “but I’d love to work in buying to. I’d love to be responsible for what’s stocked where.” She’s definitely one to watch in the future.

Two other designers were to be featured – Marko Mitanovski (Vogue’s ‘One to Watch’) and Jasper Garvida (winner of Project Runway 2008). I was informed that they would appear much, much later. After a gruelling day of shows and presentations, the thought of staying out any longer was terrifying. I was sorry to miss them, if Nakiwala’s collection was anything to go by.

The house of Jaeger fell by the wayside for many a year. In 2008 they presented their first womenswear collection to great acclaim (I remember and still do coverting a rather wonderful Trapeze coat/cape as it floated down the catwalk). The launch of the catwalk shows have seen it’s designers attempting to bring the archive designs up to date whilst remaining commercially viable.

As the crowd was seated, illness many models from the campaign peppered the front row, cialis 40mg Erin O’Connor to Laura Bailey whilst model of the moment Lara Stone closed the show. Whispering excitedly as the lights began to dim, it felt as if the entire crowd suddenly snapped their heads to the right in chorographic glory. As Anna Wintour walked in through the back entrance, the expected press scrum ensured Ms. Wintour’s bodyguards gently pushed them out of the way.

As the crowd re-settled as the lights began to dim in preparation for the show those famous sunglasses (and thankfully lack of the snakeskin coat she had been seen wearing previously) appeared on the face and the first model sauntered down the shaggy carpet covered catwalk.
Jaeger presented a grown up modern office wear collection that should be celebrated for it’s rejection of the skinny skinny body hugging trend that has been occupying many a catwalk at this year’s London Fashion Week.

s20103

As expected for a house of 125 years their back catalogue provides the design team with fertile ground for inspiration. This year the design team revisited the late seventies photography of Guy Bourdin. Whose palette of ivory and apple explains the nostalgic sense inherent in the collection’s slightly old fashioned and prints. It was a catwalk that nodded to trends rather than be a slave to the product and desires of fast fashion.

s2010

The rather wonderful super wide pleated shorts had a touch of Chloe s/s09 whilst the Harem pants were 80’s sequined glamour with a super baggy bum.
The oversize sweaters and cardigans were particular delights as was the body cum sweater that looked a potential summer time super short jumpsuit. These pieces appeared especially textural.
Block colors’. Statement jewellery accessorised the models alongside elegant clutches. Chiffon trousers were off set by an arguably but the aforementioned, old fashioned yet desirable colour palette. Perhaps because it was easy elegance and an incredibly feminine collection.

The trousers were high waisted with ruffled tops clinched in by belts as the fabric draped over the hips to create the Jaeger new “half-moon” shape. Thus continuing their designs for a softly structured silhouette.

s2010

Knits were a strong feature on the catwalk continuing the seventies inspiration through the shimmery gold thread used in the items. The over-sized slouchy boyfriend cardigans countered the super structured bordering on the extreme of recent seasons often found on.

It was a colour palette (Sepia, Apple) I enjoyed and I found the shapes of the clothes delivered the modernity, the classic tayloring needs transforming the clothes into soft relaxed wearability. Hopefully by continuing to draw on the strengths of it’s archives it will continue both as a catwalk to watch and clothes to invest in.
