The Profile Catwalk Show at Clothes Show Live 2010
The show opens spectacularly with Corset Art and music from Estelle. The collection features tiny ruffled skirts and stunning steel boned corsets. The collection is split into 3 sections beginning with a trend based animal print section with leopard prints and ruffled skirts, this leads into newspaper corsets designed by the 15year old son of head designer Hazel Nelson-Williams. (Gok swung by the stand and signed one of these!!) The last two were spangly and dressy, a jewel purple formal outfit and a show stopping red sparkling corset with a full net skirt.
Providing warming knitwear to the catwalk Claudia Polo’s collection is made up of chunky knit dresses and stunning ruffled capes. Accessorised with retro hats and boots this collection exudes class and style.
Lightening the atmosphere with upbeat music the Playsuit Parlour designs are a mixture of stunning Indian fabrics and traditional Japanese inspired shapes. The result is gorgeous and these cute yet elegant garments look great on the catwalk. The playsuits range from long bottoms with ankle draw strings to shorter designs strutted coyly down the runway.
This collection is perfect for the ultimate party season with shimmering gold flashes, bright turquoise and purple, lace – this collection puts the F in Festive and Fabulous!
I am Generic
The I Am Generic collection adds an urban edge to the Profile Show with hooded ponchos printed with simple geometric shapes. The effect is surprisingly effective and as music pounds this collection completely owns the catwalk.
The Khuzkus collection is a mix of western party glamour made with African inspired fabrics. The collection moves through gorgeous prints, block colours and climaxes with stunning black and gold strapless puffball dresses! Perfect for a party!
Doris and Doris
Doris and Doris source African fabrics and combine the traditional costume of the savannah with western silhouettes. Favourite piece number one was the red and black strapless hareem jumpsuit that looked like the ultimate diva’s choice! The other was a pair of two tone trousers with bright tribal prints on the front, side piping and leather on the reverse. Totally different to anything else at the show this collection looked incredible.
The Cocoabella collection rocks onto the catwalk in a flash of red, black and leather. The strong rockabilly trends go down well with the crowd! Cute emblazoned tees tucked into a netted skirt topped off with a black jock style leather jackets that sold out by the second day of the show!
Me and thee
Me and Thee mixes sexy bodycon silhouettes with funky geometric prints that look like a wild cross of tie-dye and Photoshop! The catwalk collection manages to encompass all age ranges with flattering rouched shapes as well as ultra-tight fitting disco themed numbers.
Belles of London
Belles of London’s collection provides high octane glamour. Mainly black with flashes of metallic’s the collection covers all bases with glamour wear for work, the festive season and everyday looking good! The collection moves through from high-waisted black trousers with a lace batwing top to a black floor sweeping evening gown. Extra glam factor is added with all over sequin long sleeved dresses that match the black and gold themed catwalk.
