THE SHINING, Day 1 & 2

Quick Reports from London Fashion Director, Norma Shelley, London, UK

All you had to do was stand still and you would forget to breathe. The lights created their own universe, radiating off of sequins and crystal, flax and gold thread. London Fashion Week, Fall 2010 had taken the golden age glamour from New York Fashion Week and used a Roman gladiator theme seen in Peter Pilotto, Hakaan, and Paul Costello. Fashion designers both in New York and London seemed to have recycled the sandal look just in time for another rotational pull by Hollywood’s coming mythical film, Clash of the Titans. But the London runways this year were all titan and less Titanic in nature. Grecian-themed drape dress pieces played toward a more Gladiator than a Vestal Virgins role by being cut above the knee rather than skirting the floor.  From ruched chiffon to metallic, the draped, shortened look conquered all.

A return to Eastern-silk trends, bright 80s floral, and a sophisticated yet exotic safari look also made an appearance in Daks, Charles Anaste, Kinder Aggugini, Mary Katrantzou, and House of Holland.

Norma Shelley is a fashion consultant and director working in London.
