Angel Sanchez - Tropical intensity - New York

Amazing ! At  Angel Sanchez the models seemed to be enveloped in intensely coloured petals from the tropics.20150915-_YFW1836 The cut was simple to allow delicate floral detailing  in  leather and acrylic make more of an impact – you could almost see flowers  walking down the runway with their stigmas, pollen  and anthers.

Angel Sanchez SS16  was a tropical garden filled with  green, citrus yellow, mango  orange  and fuchsia .  The only print was large and an ode  to  the Glorious  Hibiscus (Cayena) flower.

A glorious collection from this Venezuelan born designer  whose muse is a woman that  wants to get noticed whilst still remaining elegant and poised and very LATINA.

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 ...
