London Fashion Week: Edeline Lee AW15Saturday, 28 February 2015
I always make an extra effort to see the Edeline Lee presentation when I'm down for fashion week. Not only does she make some amazing clothes but the setting always pushes boundaries when it comes to art in a fashion landscape.
This time Lee had taken over a whole art studio to bring her vision to life. It was all an exploration for the senses, I particularly liked the mirrored tree which you had to walk through to gain access to the room. This revealed yet more wonderful pieces and an amazing film showcasing the collection.
This was the first of Lee's presentations I'd been to that didn't have her full collection shown on models, instead she had one solitary model who was also the subject of the giant cut outs scattered around the studio. I was shocked when the lovely lady in question started to talk to us about the collection (models usually remain silent and composed), showing her passion for being involved in this collection.
As for the clothes themselves, she has a knack for making clothes women enjoy wearing. The striped fitted dresses really caught my eye. Being able to get up close and personal with the piece meant you could really see the craftsmanship that went into making them. The outerwear were the real hero pieces of the collection, for the simple fact that I could see myself wearing it. Cocoon style coats with cut out sleeves peaked my interest. I'm sure that Edeline will continue to project her collections into the minds and wardrobes of the public, cementing her position as a real contender in the global market.
