Saturday 13th September: LFW SS15 - Holly Fulton


If you are down at Somerset House in London for Fashion Week you will notice this omnipresent pattern created for sponsor Lavazza by Holly Fulton for their cafes around the site including the beautiful silver airstream bus.  Her show was my first of the season, with this cosmic illustrated invitation and Flower Appreciation Society special hand-tied bouquets on the front row as indication of the collection's inspiration.   Holly's muse came from the Anglo-Saxon sun goddess Eastra via the Scottish artist JD Fergusson's sculptures after his partner the dancer Margaret Morris.  The vibe was "sun-worship, folk art and self expression" with patterns in the form of heavenly heavily encrusted detailed 3D sequin & crystal flowers.  I have a feeling SS15 is going to be a very floral season so Holly's unique interpretation is sewing the seeds for the next shows to follow in Milan and Paris........
