I love some pieces from Louise Grey's collections.
"The emphasis was firmly on fun at the Louise Gray Autumn/Winter 2010 presentation. Models danced around the room to the funky beats of the DJ in the corner, while Louise Gray (wearing her own red patterned trousers and underwear-as-outerwear) stood around and chatted to visitors. The clothes hung like artwork from large boards set up around the room, and people were encouraged to interact with the designs by putting their faces through the holes like children at a fairground.
Louise Gray wants to let us know she has arrived, and that she is brighter, bolder and more fearless than ever. Fabric was the most important element, with unusual 3D textures created by Louise’s experimental quilting and devore techniques. Textures, patterns and shapes were clashed together in a fabulous explosion of colour, and silhouettes ranged from masculine shorts to draped, feminine dresses. Another highlight was the deep-dyed sheepskin designs which had a mad-cap, but cosy, appeal. Not to be worn by the faint-hearted!"
Thanks for the report....
