Jenny Holmes and Dimitris Theocharidis aka Jena Theo are the winners of last season’s Fashion Fringe. There is definitely a reason for that. They certainly seem to be masters in the art of controlled volumes, soft floaty pieces and contrasting textures. From mohair to denim, silk and leather all come together to create a riveting “first” collection.
I was completely smitten with the hair styling that was directly inspired by vintage styles, giant victory rolls and sideways quiffs were totally glorious.
Special mention also to the shoes – mary-janes/dancing shoes with what looked like a giant fabric tassle on the front… and quite low heels too. Even Nicola from Girls Aloud was transfixed by them (that was my LOL of the day).
That was most of what I did on Day 1 of London Fashion Week. I have a few videos to show you, but they will come later!
Stay tuned for Unique, Henry Holland, PPQ and more tomorrow…
