Am I an alien? Corrie Nielsen SS12

Corrie Nielsen SS12 London Fashion Week

What? Corrie Nielsen at London Fashion Week

Where? My Beautiful Fashion, The Old Sorting Office

When? Friday 16th September, 10am

Who? Our fave gentleman of fashion Colin McDowell sitting FROW

Inspired by Dorian Gray and with a soundtrack by Ken Watanabe, Corrie Nielsen’s SS12 show didn’t disappoint. The ex-Vivienne Westwood designer delivered theatrical pleats and architectural shapes – giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “peplum trend”.

With lots of nods to Japan, the models walked at a snails pace underneath the shining baubles lining the ceiling of the gloomy Old Sorting Office. But that gave us plenty of time to admire the pintucks around the breasts on the dresses, the gathered fabric on metallic trenches and otherworldly make-up – green eyeshadow with strong black brows.

Now we just need to find a Victorian aristocrat who’s throwing an Orient-themed party to wear the collection to. If you hear of one, tweet us. We’ll wear Nielsen’s beautiful black coat, complete with train.
