COLLECTION| Bernard Chandran AW12

The show was packed from wall to wall, the room buzzing with excitement, a high energy drum and bass sound track kicked off the show, giving a futuristic urban feel to the runway with front row celebrities including Keisha Buchanan and Pandemonia.

With high collars being the key staple for this collection, both detachable and attached, heavy beaded embellishment against subtle shift dresses highlight the importance of this piece for the season. Colours were monochromatic black, white and grey using different fabric textures through quilting and laser cutting with disconnected shoulders all adding detail to the garments, with the only highlight of colour being electric blue. Fur was also worked into a brocade like camouflage.

Accessories and footwear were angular, with winged heels in contrasting colours. Hair was set in a slick futuristic wave incorporated with curled quiffs. Make up was strong with red glitter lips, bare eyes and heavy brows, adding a slight masculine charm to the looks. Bernard Chandran definitely didn't disappoint
