LFW A/W 13/14 – Zeynep Tosun

Zeynep Tosun is an Instituto de MarangoniΒ graduate, fromΒ Istanbul who worked for Alberta Ferretti before moving back to starting her own label in 2008. <There is some beautiful designs coming from Turkey>

Zeynep gave us an opulent collection filled with strong shapes, think big bold collars and sleeves, leather, bright yellow and orange colours and bold graphic prints. Everything that is so very on trend but mixed with a fabrics of lush velvet and ruffled collars of a renaissance era, and oddly, with a twist of cowgirl elements.

LFW A/W 13/14 – Carlotta Actis Barone

Carlotta Actis Barone is an Italian born Central Saint Martin’s graduate, who already has five collections under her belt. She’s worked with the likes of Stella McCartney, Balmain and BCBG Max Azria… all very different brands with different looks and aesthetics to theΒ CarlottaΒ Actis Barone woman.

The collection was highly modern, with elegant long dresses with sheer skirts. The silhouettes of the 30s skimmed down the runway, with pleated and sheer fabrics to give glimpses of the woman underneath.
