Whether for its star-studded FROW or its utterly spell-binding designs, the Julien Macdonald show is ALWAYS one worth talking about - and for autumn/winter ’16, it certainly did not disappoint.
As we joined the queue outside London’s exclusive One Mayfair hotel, it became apparent that Julien had every little detail down to a T. Rows of hydrangeas, daffodils and daisies laced the rows of keen fashionistas, and when we entered the venue, things only got better.
High ceilings, tapestries and glass-stained windows made for a truly fairytale backdrop against (what we expected) would be a similarly ethereal sea of designs.
A-listers en masse began to filter into the building. MIC faves Millie Mackintosh and Rosie Fortescue took their seats clad in gowns (personally made by Julien) we thought only existed in our dreams.
Much to our enjoyment, our frock dreams didn’t end there.
Models sauntered down the runway in a whole host of floor-length metallic dresses complete with bejewelled bodices, lace ladders and mesh inserts.
Eye candy came in high supply too. Topless tattooed men dressed in butt-sculpting trews and high-shine boots were a welcome addition to the all-round crowd-pleasing collection.
The show-stealer? Bringing the event to a close, Julien Macdonald gave us SERIOUS #bridalgoals with a white lace-sleeved off-the-shoulder number complete with dreamy ostrich feather skirt. Words do not do it justice.
(Oh, and we wouldn’t say no to that A-DORABLE kids version, either.)
As for *that* sheer Gigi Hadid Sports Illustrated jumpsuit, the autumn/winter 16 collection saw many a mesh detail, while said jumpsuit remained tightly under Gigi’s wraps.
All in all, the collection came with an air of Balmain that we predict the Kardashian clan will be ALL over.
Now excuse us while we draft up our list…
