London Fashion Week S/S 2012 Catwalk Review: Blow Presents Eleanor Amoroso

University of Westminster graduate Eleanor Amoroso specialises in innovative handcrafted crochet techniques. She was last to show as part of Blow Presents at LSO St. Luke's on Sunday 18th September 2011.

Eleanor Amoroso S/S 2012 by Gilly Rochester.

Eleanor Amoroso's show made me nervous. I find it really hard to watch models struggle with shoes and that is exactly what happened to every poor sod as she made that first awkward turn in gigantic knife edge platforms at the top of the catwalk. They may have looked good when not in motion but I am afraid I just don't get non-functional footwear: I spent the whole show playing will-she-won't-she in my head and let me tell you that it was a distraction from admiring the clothes. The shoes were designed in collaboration with Julia Kaldy, whose website features some much more wearable designs. Fashion, eh?
