The full schedule for London Fashion Week hasn’t been released yet, but we can report that Issa will hold their show first – on September 15 at 7 pm.
The floaty line by Brazilian-British designer Daniella Issa Helayel held their first New York show last year, with Jessica Stam as their poster girl and a parade of sequin maxi-dresses and hand-drawn prints. Our favorite moments were the swooshy mini sheaths, and the way Jessica Stam bent down, smoothed the curling Persian carpet that made up the runway, and then walked out into the press pit.
This year, our favorite moments might take place in the line’s latest edition:
The Issa taxi.
Apparently, Daniella bought some old-school British cabs on eBay and gutted their insides, stocking them with chairs reupholstered from Issa fabric.
Those who can’t hitch a ride in London should stay tuned – there will also be a designer cab in New York…
