Manchester provided us with an astonishing amount of colour and thick knits. Yet again as seen in Manchester the start and finish were of high importance and boy did Manchester provide.
Jousianne Propp hosted a magical display of sculptured plastics on slimline jersey and wool body hugging skirts. The statements made within this show were most definitely on the shoulders as well as hemlines along jackets, dresses and skirts.
Hannah Porter introduced us to an array of unusual hairpieces using for fringing on woolen cropped bralets complimenting clear patterned skirts. An audiences approval engulfing the room as fabrics created vast movement along the catwalk.
The menswear was strong, elongated arms were seen from Faye Oakenfull with playful layered wools.
The finishing point was the highlight for the audience overall, Rebecca Scarlett Stant displayed a burst of creativity with exaggerated shoulders, boxed frames and structured waists. Candy stripes were seen on blazers and cropped trousers were adorned with cutesy lace embellishment.
An impressive display seen from Manchester with emphasis being placed on colour, stripes and enhancing the female form. All in all a show in which the audience and myself fully enjoyed.
