London Fashion Week: Antonio Berardi

As perfect a show as one would expect from the talented Brit who normally shows in Milan, back to show support for 25-years of London Fashion Week.

In a church hidden somewhere just off a busy Oxford Street top press were treated to a winning series of Swarovski-encrusted jackets (one sexy version laced at the back) and dresses with lingerie details: brassieres, satin straps and corsetry cleverly picked out with crystals. Then came the kimono-inspired tangerine section and tight dresses in stretchy fabrics and evening coats some in a pretty blue. And then it all moved up a beat (the music included) with the half a dozen or so immaculately-crafted black dresses made from sections of stretchy fabrics skillfully stitched together. Someone gasped at the  jet encrusted stove pants. And someone gasped again at an almost other-worldly looking Alla, hands-on-hips, in the mid-thigh corset dress pictured. The whole thing was just incredible.

  1. Loved the collection! Really strong but feminine.
    The dress above is my favourite of them all…don’t know why…maybe it’s because my mother would kill me if she saw me wearing it. (I wish I could wear it!)

  2. Great info. Lucky me I recently found your blog by accident (stumbleupon).
    I’ve saved as a favorite for later!
