On the opening night of London fashion Week SS17 London Ethnic gathered some of the coolest emerging designers in the London fashion scene and their latest creations for SS17.
The opening party hosted at the Vaudeville Club in Earl’s Court mingled together fashionistas, press and industry members to celebrate the first day of the Fashion Week and to witness the newest trends displayed by London designers.
Fashion Designers Louise Coleman, Amelia Nwajei, Ruth Woldeselasie, Ludmilla Whittaker, Nurus Saba Khalil and London Ethnic In-house collection displayed vibrancy, fashion forward thinking and eclectic London style.
Emerging new designer Louise Coleman was influenced by the Kawaii Japanese prints and gothic illustrations that reflect her background as a fashion illustrator. Her catwalk was dominated with kimonos, dresses, dark block colours and dramatic eye makeup.
Ethical fashion designer Ruth Woldeselasie brought to life a mesh of silks and recycled fabrics that are the philosophy of her fashion house Urban Roots Eco. Smooth pastels, shiny silks in lengthy skirts were created in asymmetric forms capturing the sense of femininity and rejoicing the beauty of the female silhouette to the fullest.
Our +London Ethnic in-house collection which was a revamp of the previous collections, keeping the line of symmetric shapes with white & pink pastel colours. This time we added more tulle and transparent fabrics to the linens and cottons in a collection which is dominated by crop tops and layered skirts & dresses.
Fashion Designer Nurus Saba Khalil brought block navy blue colours shaped in sheath, empire and pouf dresses with floral white embellishments and crochet layers which overly dominated her style and made it her signature for the SS17 trend forecast.
Fashion designer Amelia Nwajei showcased her newest creations which as ever were dominated with ethnic African prints which enriched her collection with colourful prints. Preserving her flare ethos she evoked the 70’s era with tunics and bell sleeves.
Newly graduated menswear fashion designer Ludmilla Whittaker showcased her latest menswear collection which was inspired by American spy movies and street artists. Prints that mimicked broken TV screen colours were the décor over block colour lying underneath. Asymmetric large coats and stripes dominate her collection that seems to be in synchrony of London’s ever changing artistic district of Shoreditch.
