London Fashion Week: Day Two
Day two took an eerie turn with gothic fairytale motifs, shapeshifting silhouettes and light pitted against the dark
Drawing on folklore and fairytale, the A/W 15 offering of ApuJan incorporated red capes, antlers and woodland motifs familiar from childhood fables. The show was a mix of midi shapes and quirky jumpers slashed at the arm. A stark colour palette of black, white and red gave a gothic feel, while hair, in contrast, was scooped up into sweetly innocent buns.
Judy Wu's A/W 15 show was a lesson in the art of layering, with endless arrangements of neon colours and bold graphics that gave a futuristic feel. Hair was both soft and sleek: centre-parted, with one side slicked back and the other teased skyward.
Zeynep Kartal explored the elements of light and dark within her ethereal show. A dramatic collection of sheer floor-sweeping gowns in and complex panelled designs had us mesmerised. Models had their long hair fashioned into chic, glossy low-ponytails.
