Kanye West joins front row at London Fashion Week
“He’s taken an old lady texture and recycled the concept to make something modern. It’s really clever,” she told The Associated Press, before going backstage to give Carr a big hug.
Flowers and swallows, lace and chiffon: Soft femininity and romance were the order of the day at Erdem.
Erdem Moralioglu, the Canadian-born designer now based in London, displayed a collection of dreamy floral prints in soothing pastels, lacy dresses and flowing pleated skirts.
Working from a palette of butter, cornflower and creams, Erdem showed off the feminine form with features that hint at a bygone era: delicate short gloves in lace or floral prints that matched the wearer’s dress, off-the-shoulder necklines, sheer lacy three-quarter sleeves.
Other pieces, like the high-waisted hot pants, retained the florals but kept the look modern and sexy.
