BRIGHTON FASHION WEEK 2015
Dear Secret Agents,
Just as last year, our tireless secret agents infiltrated Brighton Fashion Week 2015 camouflaged as designers and coloured the runway. There was a lot of black to fight against. Nobody did it better than our Brighton based secret agent L.O.M Fashion. Her Tribal Tales collection was an explosion of colours. No apologies whatsoever! Black-istas get the hell out the way! Viva La Colour Revolution!
Paraded quickly through the catwalk, the general public cheered the colours. But secret agents knew better. They were reading hidden messages in the prints, pom-poms and fringe. There were a lot of messages to write down. Hope you got them all in?
Then there was that coat – a perfect camouflage for any secret agent going incognito. Who would look at the face with a coat like that, eh?
As for the green dress, that was specifically targeted towards secret agents operating in black tie gala or bridesmaids missions. While the rest got caught up in its exquisite embroidery, our secret agents were busy looking for clues. In case you missed it, TRIANGLES was the secret code. Spot them?
And how do you spot a real secret agent designers? – Easy, they walk the talk. Quite literally. Louise O’ Mahony blooming in her own colours. Viva La Colour Revolution!
Some secret agents took rather extreme measures. They infiltrated the black dominated collection of Carlotaoms wearing yellow lemons. No, really. It was BYOL. Bring Your Own Lemons. In plastic bags please. Ammunition – just in case the WWII between colour & black started right there at Brighton Fashion Week.
One fierce lady even carried a weekend-bag full of lemons. Heavy, you say? Viva La Lemons Revolution!
The lemons threat was serious enough that some secret agents led by Claire Poggio wore lemon proof raincoats. But thankfully, raincoats were see-through so we did get to see the collection.
There was another group of secret agents who walked the runway in Gabriella Sardena’s colourful frills and pleats, full of innocent femininity. A closer look into the collection would give you hints of less than innocent intentions. Notice how some of them never took their hands out of big pockets? – Holding on to their guns that is. Ready. Steady. Viva La Colour Revolution!
Some secret agents led by Tiffany Pattinson were very concerned about a possible tear gas attack. So they came prepared, or shall we say accessorised with large scarves and masks. Tear gas or not, these secret agents were determined to be unstoppable.
Then there were true rebels led by KellyDawn Riot. Riot? – Yes, riot. Bright colours, florals, birds, insects – all together having a riot. Don’t mess with dem boyz! Viva La Colour Revolution!
