CHARLOTTE TAYLOR AW'10
An eclectic, yet cohesive ensemble of inspirations has infiltrated Charlotte Taylor’s designs for her premiere London Fashion Week collection for AW’10.
Trashy grannies, penguins, old soap operas, movies and the eccentric within provide fuel for the fire in this bold yet elegant collection.
Dashes of colour through tweed, navy, cream and pearl, twist through folds and pleats. Weighty fabrics and concealed contrasts create clothes that flow, move and transform with the movement of life. The dresses are ripe for the winter dance’aholic’, whilst coats and capes engulf you in a sea of wool, chunky zips and head consuming hoods. Tops and blouses emblazoned with a unique penguin print make for a strong, memorable statement. Elegance is also key; as is the strength of tailoring. Lines and seams are there for a reason, subtly and beautifully accentuating the female form.

I hope you like the collection as much as I do.
I dedicate it to my grandfather Harold; my biggest supporter and my buddy, who passed away in October 2009 having never seen the final outcome. Love you gramps.
