Jamie Wei Huang AW15: London Fashion Week Catwalk Review

This season Jamie Wei Huang presented a dark collection titled Nymphomaniac, shown on the Fashion Scout catwalk.

Written by Amelia Gregory

Jamie Wei Huang chose a hard vibe for A/W 2015, with a large collection titled Nymphomaniac sent down the catwalk to an ominous soundtrack of deep industrial metal. Her always androgynous tailoring was given a darker twist this season, with zips, tassels, wool insets and buckles used liberally throughout, hair worn greased across the face. A pearlescent fish scale textured top in cream with black stripes and pocket was a personal favourite; accessories were also a highlight, including crepe platform-heeled brogues in juicy patent, high wristed button gloves, clutch bags and tasselled backpacks. Blood red and intense blues were a welcome colour addition to a predominantly monochrome collection.
