I have made another new discovery as a result of London Fashion Week. This is me telling you about it.
The discovery is the designer Victoria Rangayah and her line Z-Mode. Victoria showed her Spring Summer 11 collection, entitled She is NOT Alice, at London’s Charing Cross Venue this year. It was her debut at London Fashion Week and it was extremely well received. I am so not surprised.
I wasn’t luckily enough to see the show but have been so impressed by the look book that I wanted to share it with you.
The collection is inspired by Victoria’s ideas about Alice in Wonderland. It’s an incredibly interesting take on a beautiful theme. I adore all things Alice and have been personally inspired by the costumes in books and in films for as long as I can remember. Most recently, I fell head over heels in love with Alice’s red dress in Tim Burton’s cinema extravaganza.
This is Victoria’s take,
“Like the looking glass through which Alice steps, a z-mode garment takes the wearer into a world where all is not what it seems. Small touches in the garment’s construction reward a closer look and subvert first impressions.”
The collection is absolutely beautiful. When I flicked through the look book, I had to look at it again, and then again. I had a serious love moment. Really. I absolutely loved it.
So I thought I would show you a few of my favourites. I have to say, it’s been hard trying to narrow them down. But here they are:
|Z-mode Asymmetric Hem Godet Dress|
|Z-mode Asymmetric Drape Pencil Dress|
|Z-mode Flared Skirt Dress|
|Z-mode Asymmetric Sharp Shoulder Dress|
|Z-mode Floral Mini Tunic|
|Z-mode The Jacket Dress|
|Z-mode Bracer Dress|
Beautiful hey? Classic and timeless with a good dose of edge. Victoria has achieved that stunning balance.
Now you’re probably wondering where you can buy, but I’m afraid that you’re going to have to be patient on this one. Details of this will be finalised in a few weeks and I’ll keep you posted.
I would love to know what you think.
Can’t wait to hear from you
