London Fashion Week S/S 2011 Catwalk Review: Masha Ma

New designer Masha Ma showed in the Freemasons' Hall on Sunday 19th September 2010. She's my new hot tip: her Icebreaker collection was fabulous.

Sad to say, viagra 100mg for sale but sometimes I don’t even know what’s on my own blog… and so it was that I discovered that we’ve already interviewed the very talented Masha Ma in a pre London Fashion Week blog post. I am aware that I dissed an all white collection from Lilee and I hereby reserve the right to change my mind, ampoule because Masha’s Icebreaker collection was also predominantly white, and it was fabulous.

Maybe it was the sly addition of sparkly silver that did it for me? That and the polished tailoring of multilayered capes, flouncey tiered peplums and gorgeous silky oversized bow details. I loved the styling with big knuckle duster silver rings worn across delicate model hands: it was a clever ballsy accent and stopped it all being a bit too nice.

I’ve bumped into a funny old range of people at this fashion week – at Masha Ma I walked in and was immediately scooped up by Reiki, a fashion designer and girlfriend of my cousin, so we’re more used to meeting at family events. She was sitting front row with the Bodyamr designer, who she works for. Sadly I missed that show helping my parents choose two new kitties from the cat rescue centre. *Not sad about new kitties though.* Turns out that Masha Ma is a friend because she used to work for Bodyamr too, presumably after she completed her MA at the eponymous Central Saint Martins – really the only place to go it seems.

This was the first time Masha Ma had shown at London Fashion Week properly, and if this fantastic collection was anything to go by she’ll be a fixture for a long time to come. Keep an eye on this one folks, very clever indeed.
