LFW House of Evolution presents Lug Von Siga – Day 3

The second designer (another Turkish designer) to be presented by House of Evolution was designer, Gül Agiş who showed under her label Lug Von Siga.

The colour palette started with the staple monochrome colours with splashes of orange, burgundy and navy… and then finished off with London Fashion Week favourite, of graphical prints. This collection was very edgy with clean cuts, and the makeup and hair complemented beautifully.

I loved the detailing in the skirt, with the pleated underskirt peeping out in the split.
