Holly’s A Winner
It was another off-the-wall-amazing collection from the Edinburgh College of Art graduate Holly Fulton for autumn winter 2010. We loved the stand-out art deco prints, colour clashes and interesting fabrics; all three were perfectly put together and in abundance for an autumn collection that was fun yet commercial. On top of all this, her exclusive Swarovski designs made a prominent appearance on some, if not all the looks and were just as fab as the clothes; huge statement necklaces and incredible cuffs twinkled and sparkled down the catwalk. The monochrome jumpsuit (above) was one of our favourite looks, however inpractical it may be. One of her inspirations was pythons, which was perfectly evident in the pink snakeskin that opened the show. Fur and suede were also used to rouse the senses even more than usual. Another inspiration was telephones, hence the muted-yellow telephone dress and the black trousers emblazoned with a white telephone. YUM! If you thought Holly was a one off last season, think again. Her designs are fresh, colourful, and above all, individual enough to create a buzz and to sustain an already massive fan base. Watch this space.
