 This is part two of my #LFW A/W’17 showcase series, giving you a glimpse of emerging talent I saw and met at  a Gibraltar House event. You can find part one here, and it featured Ecuadorean designer Maria Bustillos.

Stella Courtney was the next designer in the showcase. Stella combines a childlike imagination with surrealist art. The red light tones of the room captured a feel of twilight at the fairground, almost basking in the glow of the carousels lights. The silk screen prints had a very watercolour feel to them.

A dim, red room, with a rack of three outfits and a model sat on a chair… hmm seems to be a theme here (Maria Bustillos had a similar idea). The room was very dimly lit and we couldn’t really see the outfit detail that well. It was a shame as the pieces were beautiful up close and I could easily wear them with pared down outfits making Stella’s designs really stand out.

There were three pieces, an asymmetric textured skirt, a long jacket with frilled detailing, and a patterned blouse. The real draw are the beautiful patterns and mixed fabric textures. The lighting really doesn’t do them justice.

Here is a closer look at the split-front tunic. I wasn’t as keen on the fringing on the dress, but absolutely loved it on the open-front split tunic below.
