Jasper Garvida AW11

The Jasper Garvida AW 2011 show had to be one of the most colorful collections to hit the catwalk on day 1 of London Fashion Week. The jewel tones and rich fabric made us feel as though we had been transported to a couture show in Paris and made us completely forget about the dreary London weather that awaited us outside.

The collection itself was reminiscent of an Andy Warhol kind of print, from the colours to the images printed on top mixed with the contemporary oriental silhouettes. Interesting, right? 

The gowns with their cheeky thigh-high slits, high collars and gorgeous kimono sleevess looked dramatic but still elegant, everything you'd need in the case you were hitting some high-society evening party but still want to look cool. It's a shame there wasn't any casual wear though, we would have loved to rock this style during the day!
