LFW - Pierson Lawlor for SS12


One of my favourite shows from September's London Fashion Week was the amazing catwalk show for collaborative project Pierson Lawlor. The catwalk show for the collection called ‘The Mobius Strip’ used ballet dancers from The Royal Ballet to show off garments - a truly inspired idea which demonstrated the fabric's movement beautifully in an almost animalistic way. 

The debut collection was a joint project of Jayne Pierson and her friend Derek Lawlor and it was part of The Coterie event which also showcases hair-styling in fashion. The event was sponsored by Sebastian Professional which I've covered plenty of times on this blog. 

In terms of the clothing designs I simply loved the colour palette and detailing. Bright orange set against soft natural tones was something that I also saw at the Fashion Fringe show. I can definitely see myself wearing that combo next summer. The knots and tassels are another strong theme that ran throughout the collections shown during Fashion Week - we'll all be wearing them next season. I took loads of photos because I was so entranced by the movement of the dancers I wanted to capture as many little moments as I could. 

Jayne Pierson has in the past created bespoke pieces for La Roux's tour and counts many celebs as fans. Before becoming a fashion designer she studied performance art and drama and even enjoyed success as a singer and songwriter. I think this background in entertainment as a whole makes for a much better overall catwalk show experience, the whole thing was a more unique performance and I'd jump at the chance to go to next season's show. 

Here are a few of my fave pics...
