What? Jean-Pierre Braganza SS12 at London Fashion Week
Where? BFC Showspace
When? Friday 16th September at 3pm
Who? This was a hot ticket, with Brix Smith-Start, Colin McDowell and Hilary Alexander all gracing the front row
There were tailored jackets with shoulder pads, dresses made of deconstructed suit jackets and even a boiler suit in what was a showcase of sexy androgyny, but I loved these kneelength sleeveless dresses which kept cropping up. The flash of coral broke up an otherwise predominantly monochrome collection.
The cut out work on this cream shift dress reminded me of the shapes in an orchid, or some other exotic flower.
Braganza clearly paid attention in his maths classes. Even the models’ tousled fishtail plaits were meticulously executed.
