Bianca Spender Spring Summer 2010 11

Posted on May 6th, 2010

The Bianca Spender show was set up in a long circuit, with the fashion pack lining the catwalk from start to finish. Out of pure luck I managed to grab an amazing spot right at the end of the catwalk with models staring right at me.

The hair and makeup were definitely the highlight, almost turning the models into a mythical half phoenix half Amazonian, with models sporting feather eyebrows and braided hair that then turned into a messy nest with blue and red streaks.

The was Bianca Spender’s first individual show titled ‘Love among the ruins’. The clothes themselves were quite romantic, with Pre Raphaelite draping and a palette of soft nudes and greys, gold and cobalt blue. Chiffon, stiff cotton and rouched silks wrapped around the models, but my favourite was a cream lace jumpsuit that had an incredibly flattering fit, and reminded me of something Stella McCartney would send down the runway.
