fashion east

Fashion East shows are always exciting as it is a chance to witness the next wave of British talent. This year did not disappoint with (from top to bottom) Helen Lawrence, Louise Alsop and Ed Marler. Lawrence’s playful collection consisted of layering to create faces in her designs, complimenting the pastel colour palette. Louise Alsop took the grunge route using only black and white with splashes of yellow here and there, all models finished off with dreadlocks. Ed Marler’s kooky collection feels like a mash up of pirates, gypsies and all things fantasy. All had a slightly nostalgic feel to them whether it was from playing dress up or that teenage rebellious streak.
