Caroline Charles S/S10

(Boris Johnson - front row)
Caroline Charles captured the audience with her upbeat, fun and colourful show. The mood was focused on 'Optimism For The Decade', and that it certainly was! The models waltzed the catwalk in an opulent 50's summer holiday feel that oozed femininity with big loosely waved hair.The show went on to feature swimwear in poppy red and polka dots that were accessorised with heart shape framed glasses and headscarves. The swimwear was contrasted with 50's style coats in woven patchworks and high rise straight leg trousers turned up to the ankle. This style of trouser featured strongly through out the show and was even reflected in tailored shorts.
The 'Tailored Holiday Chic' feel, was quickly contrasted by Caroline Charles's use of jersey to create stylish harem pants in a baggy and slim fitting style. This collection was created in rich earthy tones of, ochre, olive and amber. These were complimented by the use of snake skin print and rich taffeta's.
Caroline Charles's style reinvented itself again for a breathtaking final collection with beautiful laces in antique whites and ivory, that were embellished with beads, embroidery and sequins. This collection had a vintage oriental essence to it, as the models carried small umbrellas, wore elbow length gloves with ivory flowers in their hair. The lace featured as dresses, trousers, blouses, gloves and leggings.
Caroline Charles was a beautiful start to London Fashion Week and lets see what the rest holds...
