Knitwear designer Derek Lawlor collaborated with milliner Hannah Gordon for a fun London Fashion Week A/W show in nice ‘n’ easy Shoreditch. We watched green and red silhouettes dancing behind an opaque screen from the sides of transformed Paper Dress Vintage shop, as the suspense built with the help of some heavy electro beats, champagne and homemade brownies. The silhouettes came to life and walked the floor, ending up in the shop windows displaying the often risque creations to lucky passers by. The collection ranged from cutaway body suits and laddered loose knit gowns to power shoulder all-in-ones and over sized chunky shawls with Lawlor’s trademark cord worked knit, finished off with Hannah Morgans abstract wooden and metal sculptured head wear. That’s Ascot sorted then.
