Edinburgh College of Art

Sorry I meant to post this yesterday! Too much football! Will try and make up for this and do two posts today...

Anastasia Arden-Maccabee opened the show with delightful crayola pastels. Still loving pastels at the moment and Anastasia's were perfect hues. The shapes were interesting and looked like manipulated shirts.
Eliza Borkowska's collection looked almost space aged to me. With clean white pieces made of stiff paper like fabric worked over ridges and peaks. Subtle muted gold and light blue hues complimented this collection.
Jett Sweeny had a very striking collection with fluid gold fabric contrasted with tailored shifts with metallic eyelets and hair.
My favorite pieces from this collection was this gold capped sleeve dress and the black shift dress. I really like the shapes the eyelets create and how they draw the eye around the body.

The words I noted down whilst watching Emma Rockett's collection come down the catwalk was Toffs on acid, playing polo and boating. Traditional garments were given a real zing with neon brights complimented by inverted boaters.
Sally Hansen then offered a very different collection from the one previous. Muted worn tones, garments with rips and sweet florals.

My favorite pieces were the coats - they looked so cosy! Could imagine them with a chic pair of jeans and heeled boots come winter. Effortlessly beautiful collection.
Another very warm and cosy collection was Louise Holsgrove. Checks, furs, velvet and a gorgeous mixture of graphic prints. Really lovely, wearable, slouchy pieces in muted tones with dashes of bright yellow, red and blue.

This dress ^ was my favorite - the print really does it for me - really interesting!

I really enjoyed this show - Well done Edinburgh!!
