London Fasion Week 2012
Despite working for a fashion forecasting company I can’t pretend that I know much about clothes myself, I’m much more of a chair person. However after watching all of the coverage of the various fashion weeks over the past month I wanted to feature something on the blog. So I decided to ask an expert in the form of my good friend Lara, who knows a lot more about fashion than I do.
At the top of her list was London based props and accessory maker and designer Fred Butler who showed her autumn/winter 2012 collection as part of London Fashion Week last week. These photos were taken backstage at the show by Wonderland magazine.
The collection features candy colours, origami structures and thick plaited pretzel cords – all very My Little Pony-esque. Also note the amazingly detailed sushi nails.
Her wearable sculptures have won her fans including Nicki Minaj and Bjork, and you may remember her bright blue telephone hat from Lady Gaga’s infamous Telephone music video.
