London Fashion Week AW 2012 - Francesca Marotta
Francesca Marotta was my first show of London Fashion Week AW 2012, and first things first, let's talk about this years My Beautiful City location. Set in the heart of London's business centre the Goldsmith's Hall, near St Paul's, was a beautiful setting for London Fashion Week and left lots of suits befuddled at the fashionistas (mainly their outfits and/or hair) queuing for shows.
The Francesca Marotta AW 12 show was all about drama. Inspired by Sicily, religion and mourning this show certainly packed a punch and fitted the dramatic ballroom setting. Red and black lace was teamed with beautiful tailored pieces and neon perspex jewellery.
Will we see perspex thorn necklaces and crowns in AW 2012?
