THE one show I wanted to see. And the one I had to miss. Weeeeep.
The hype around Holly Fulton has grown over the last few months as her show stopping creations have been a constant at every LFW since her debut in 2009. This has to be one of the most powerful collections to date. And one of the girls for Toppers is interning for her, so even more proud!

Ahh I can't even express my excitement for this collection. Fulton has shown the true captivation of the geometric print, which I love so so much. While at the same time, she makes the whole concept accessible to the working woman, with RTW pieces which stand for a bold, independent woman. The collection oozes a charm and seduction, channeled with the models razor sharp cheekbones and come-to-bed eyes.
For me, Fulton gets the balance between 20s geometric and sixties playfulness spot on. The detail in these pieces add to the luxury surrounding the 20s garments, including the jewelled earrings, collosal necklaces and layered patterns of butterflies, palms and florals. We saw the flaming pink make its comeback, as well as a transition into turquoise hues; all illuminating the black surface fabric, for ultimate dramatic effect. The colours were truly delectable, as were the ribbons of hand cut butterflies, butterflies everywhere! On the shifts themselves and, my favourite of all, the butterfly neck strap, which looks a.mazing.
The designer herself admitted she wanted to explore multiple tones in a single colour in this collection, she has certainly achieved that, with the pinks, blacks and turquoise's mingling together in an expressive style. WE <3 HF.
