FYDOR GOLAN - fast cars and bikes in technicolour!

'I know what you did last summer', Fydor Golan debut pre-collection for SS16 definitely got you popping out of your seat! Fyodor Golan Show - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin Spring/Summer 2016

First of all there was the racing car prints, either blown up and distorted or in mini me version all over the gorgeous puff ball blouses and skirts.  I am sure I saw a motorbike wheel in there ? I strained hard enough.

Then there were patchwork dresses  of coloured snake skins with perforated mesh and sports lycra - cut in bias, incredibly flattering & easy to wear.

I guess my favourite though has to be Dave Kaufman's exploration of textures, cutting up denim, bleaching it  and then reassembling it to lighten its weight. I just loved the feathering of the denim edges and the way it created an almost fur quality...

Unfortunately I wanted more and would have loved to get a closer feel backstage...his pieces are truly meticulously executed but stay very much in optimistic fun mode ...

Wonderlands - sexy- sustainable -style.

Sexy, gorgeous underwear that is also ethically and sustainably produced is my absolute heaven, so I was delighted to see new, young Swiss brand Wonderlands on show at The Ethical Fashion Show in Berlin, the biggest green platform at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week._Q4A3696 (1) With a strong focus on sustainability, but maintaining a real sexiness, the 'Recycled' underwear range is made from polyester produced from recycled cotton and recycled PET bottles, while the 'Organic' range of boxers is made from organic cotton.

All of the material is coloured using natural chemical-free dyes, and a portion of the profits made from the underwear goes to charitable causes.
