Editor @ Large . . . Jasper Conran

aving got over the excitement of spotting the Sugababes on front row, we settled into watch Conran watch his magic.
All futuristic, Jasper sent his models down the runway in various shades of red, black, cream, fuschia and orange often clashing the colours together. The collection used a lot of lazer cutting to create cut out panels that were either replaced by barely there chiffon or pulled away and pinned up to create structure. 
The collection was very structured and had an almost origami feel to it at times. Jasper created the most amazing structured knits that curved up over the models backs and created strong, angular shoulders. 
Tops were often full and draped at back or worked into egg like cape shapes that engulfed the models like shells, with pillar box cape slits for arm holes. There was an amazing petal dress that had layers and layers of nude petal shapes again referring to origami. 
Many of the dresses had an almost art deco feel as foiling, pvc and mirrored mosaics were used to embellish the garments. 
This technique was used on silk, chiffon and wool creating a multitude of textures. If you didn't catch the show, check it out the pictures! Literally out of this world!
