I want to
share some more Fashion Week pictures with you, because the Huishan Zhang
presentation was one of my favourite events of LFW, not just because of the
beautiful designs, but also because it was the most relaxed and classy event I
went to. It took place in the Mirror Room of the Rosewood Hotel in High
Holborn, so imagine being led into a stunning room full of mirrors and vintage
comfy furniture, where you are greeted with a lovely afternoon tea. They served
tea and champagne before the runway show started which is probably my new
favourite combination of drinks even thought it sounds a bit odd. After
enjoying some yummy sandwiches and pastries and getting a bit of a rest, the runway show started.
Zhang SS15 collection was inspired by the paintings of Fiona Rae, which invite
the spectator into an abstract fantasy world, where you get lost in texture,
light and colour. The garments looked very soft and free floating and suited
the classy and vintage atmosphere in the room. Sharp, sparkly, colourful crystals
formed stunning patterns and a contrast to the soft, powdery, feminine shades of
The rich textiles used, such as jacquard, cotton, shirting, coloured lace and organza, gave the collection an exquisite look and where draped and tailored impeccably. There was a smart use of volume by the designer and fringe in pastel colours added to some of the outfits gave them a great 3-dimensional look and texture.

The shoes where pointy, shiny had a t-strap and where presented with and without a thin heel. It was a nice touch to style some of the look with flats, as it gave the otherwise very chic and classic looks a more laid bag touch without taking away the lady like feel.
I have to
be honest normally I would say I enjoy runway show more than presentation but
this year I noticed again, that presentations can be the best of both worlds, like Huishan Zhang’s that incorporated a runway show into an afternoon tea
event. This presentation was on Day 4 of LFW and I was already quite exhausted
from the busy days before so I enjoyed being able to sit back relax and enjoy fashion.
