Holly Fulton’s shows have become my favourites at #LFW. Her modern, glamourous mashup of Art Deco and ‘70s Riviera always results in the most flattering, gorgeous garments; long flowing silk dresses being a particular highlight every season. For SS12, Fulton did not disappoint. Her signature aesthetic continued, taking in the season’s influence du jour, the 1920s, Fulton showed a strong collection of dropwaisted dresses, printed cropped jackets and simple, flattering tailoring. Colours were vibrant, taking in corals, lapis blues and citrines, but this did not dilute the sophisticated vibe, nor Fulton’s emphasis on providing a full wardrobe for a glamorous woman. The collected showed everything from evening to daywear, with eyecatching graphics and feather embellishments lending a luxe, youthful element. Holly Fulton once again proved that she showcases everything that London Fashion Week is about – youthful rebellion and experimentation successfully mixed with commercial direction and feminine shapes. Without a doubt, Fulton’s was in my top three shows this season.
