LONDON--We gave you the first look--now here's the rest!
Designers David Koma and Holly Fulton showed together for the second season in a row as part of Topshop's New Gen series, and they really are the perfect runway mates. Mostly because their collections are vastly different.
It was back to the BFC tents this morning, where David Koma and Holly Fulton showed off their Spring 2011 offerings. First up was Koma, whose pale pink, yellow and gold peplums continued on with the mood of the week. And he showed wedges--another big trend, I’ve realized. According to The Daily, London Fashion Week’s newspaper, editors already hate kitten heels and are retreating back to wedges, which are “more comfortable.” I think the lower you are to the ground the easier it is to walk, but I’m also a girl who’s usually in flats. But I digress.
British Fashion Council's NEWGEN scholarship endows four emerging designers each season to put on a runway show. Spring/Summer 2011's recipients were announced today, and included David Koma, Holly Fulton, Mary Katrantzou, Michael van der Ham and Peter Pilotto. Craig Lawrence and Louise Grey will each hold a presentation. Along with £5,000 - £10,000 towards their show costs, the winners receive free exhibition space, usage of the BFC catwalk and mentoring.
