Roving Reporter : Avsh Alom Gur

I love him! 

Gur was the very first, 'real' fashion week show I ever saw and ever since then I was hooked. I have to admit though this season I was a bit bereft by the collection. This is the first Gur season where I didn't desperately want to buy the whole lot. 

But if you as me if I enjoyed it? . . . well Hell Yeh!

This collection was definitely meant to be tongue and cheek, an ironic poke at the 'economic crisis' and it's about time someone stopped skirting around the issue and just said, guess what?! We are all broke!

Confused?! Well, the most talked about pieces at Gur were those embellished in beautiful beaded 'credit crunch' phrases. I love the irony of blinging up the word, after all if you had no money, you would definitely not be so sparkly!
Every dress, even those beautifully made in chiffon and printed silks incorporated cartoon, Pop Art style slogans. 

Other influences for the more wearable pieces was 'Russian folk tradition'. Huge skirts embellished in crochet flowers. Autumnal tone, abstract nature prints also decorated skirts, blouses and silk wrap trenches.

Fav piece: Purple, knitted tube dress and black bodice/printed lilac skirted dress - I want these please!
