Helena Bonham Carter’s getting her plastic out as we speak. For the A La Disposition salon show today at Vauxhall Fashion Scout was full of enough eccentric checked tux jackets, voluminous quilted skirts and quirky hats to make any Victoriana fan shake with excitement.
The dimly lit space upstairs in the Freemason’s Hall suited the gothic mood perfectly and the A La Disposition invites “solemnly” requested our presence at the show. It is a shame we only got to see the looks on mannequins as I can imagine these outfits looking great with that huge, romantic poodle hair you sometimes see in fashion editorial. And the models striding down the catwalk, canes in hand.
But the clothes spoke for themselves – top hats, zig-zag patterned pencil skirts and coats with tails that drifted across the marble floor made this one individual collection indeed. The A La Disposition woman for AW12 is on a Tim Burton/ Dickens binge and looking to make a statement.
