Alberta Ferretti can only be associated with glamour, class and attitude should be the best accessories for you to wear. In this ever changing world, some may think that there is no place for the romantic souls; however Ferretti is determined to prepare her ideal woman into the future, creating for her the perfect garments for every occasion. Even thought clothes alone won't transform you into an instant super heroin, it will sure boost your confident and help you project the super woman you are.
The collection's strong point was the use of transparency, sheer flowy fabrics floated down the runway. The silhouette had Alberta Ferretti written all over it, most adequate to many different body types. The key being her work, in my opinion, relies on the inspiration: Art Nouveau. Of course these lines are brought into the future, synthesising to become lean yet still very organic. The textures were explored to adhere volume, the versatility of the pencil skirt was much more obvious.
I absolutely loved the dresses, there was an amazing selection of little black dresses; a must have in every lady's wardrobe. The final dresses have huge potential to be seen in the award ceremonies, who would you picture wearing wearing part of this collection?
The concept of protection and vulnerability has been bounded to the woman in many contexts, the way she has been portrayed thru out history as the weaker vessel; it is almost as if it was a condition of the genre. I am sure we all girls have thoughts on the matter, so express your thoughts and open to the world or rest yourself in layers of indulgence when you need it the most.

My favourite show ever! I was greeted by a bubbly glass of fun and several other treats to set tone at the Old Billingsgate; fun, cool, colour, happy people congregated to enjoy the show. The atmosphere was relaxed and bubbly, the venue was turned into Meadham Kirchhoff's dream club.
The collection opened with a bright coloured sweater and denim, the patchwork in cartoon themes was playful and fun. The show was incredibly dynamic, even the models changed their skin colour to blue or turquoise. The hair pieces had a rococo vibe, like if Marie Antoinette had Manic Panic as her stylists.
My absolut highlight of the collection was the incredible dyed fur, particularly the monster face one. The trousers and tight was full of print and colours, loved the rainbow sequin suit! The dresses where flirty, full or colour and movement.
Print can be resumed to geometric patterns, plus a monster and eyes. Accessories were pure disco glam, with glitter platforms and fury boas. Think about colour when you are shopping, if you are a bit shy. The collection had many different textures, you might want to start including some of these into your wardrobe.
