LFW re-see: Jayne Pierson




I was lucky enough to be in the front row for Welsh designer Jayne Pierson's catwalk show at London Fashion Week. Annoyingly, this was the only show I had my camera for, and the battery died halfway through.

Entitled 'Kingdom of Shadows', the collection clearly wasn't giving up on the gothic vibe that we've been seeing for a few seasons now. Black, black and more black was broken up only by the blue and silver of the gown above.

While I'm a bit over the Victoriana look, particularly in such extremes as this, some of the details really stood out. The corsetry of the afore-mentioned gown would not have looked out of place in a Vivienne Westwood collection, and the velvet detail over the sheer fabric that you can see in the third shot was really delicate and interesting. It's only the designer's fourth season at LFW, and it seems fairly certain we can expect some exciting things in the future.
