Music: Back in Black by AC/DC
Creating stunning installations, body adornment and jewellery Zinfinity combines precious materials with day to day plastics for an industrial twist. VIP received a gift from this designer in their goodie bag – a cast brass cable tie tag on leather cord – this is a small taster of the gorgeous designs that Zinfinity creates using reclycling and everyday materials as inspiration. This collections choreography was inspired by a recent trip to Poland Fashion Week where the catwalk shows were slower and more theatrical with the models mostly naked walking slowly down the catwalk with their eyes closed. This showcased the jewellery fantastically and the eery, wailing music provided a perfect back drop for such avante gard creations.
Music : Erased, over. Out. by Nine Inch Nails
Christina Bonn Lux Lingerie
Recently graduated Christina creates stunning lingerie using incredibly luxurious materials such as Swarovski crystal, French laces, Italian silks and chiffon. Her underwear creations are stylish, classy and absolutely beautiful!
The models slinked their sexy way onto the catwalk making full use of Studio Valbonnes wrought iron railings, the music was slow and seductive and the underwear, hand made and gorgeous was showcased beautifully. The collection was made up of only six outfits, but that was all that was needed – fully showing the skill of the designer. Hand sewn crystals and silk shimmered under the catwalk lights and this left the show on a high.
