In collaboration with ‘The Body Shop’, I was very kindly invited along to attend a few of the Fashion Scout SS14 shows held at the Freemason’s Hall in London. I also had the chance of experiencing the exciting backstage mayhem, the rehearsals as well as the actual show.
On day one, I sat second row for the Nian By Nihan Buruk SS14 show. Nihan from Turkey graduated with a degree in Fashion and Textile design and has since opened her own workshop in Istanbul creating unique and haute couture fashion. This is her second London Fashion Week collection and her range represents creativity, daring and a sense of empowerment. The make up is David Bowie themed, think pale, barely there with pops of turquoise. White shimmer highlighter was used to create the white lightening strike and nails were kept nude. Luxurious silk fabrics filled the room as models were transformed in to androgynous silhouettes with an urban edge, the focus on each piece screams high self esteem, a sense of authority and power.
