On The Lam PR Press Day

Breakfast at Shoreditch House for the Press Day organised by Jenny Lam of On The Lam PR. The cool showroom set up  at this trendy spot displayed beautifully the incredible garments of Jenny's clients. I'm always attracted to colours and this time I've picked those two designers for the amazing palette they 've used for their collections. Let's talk about Carlotta Actis Barone and Soojin Lee.
This gorgeous silk evening dress with an embroidery of feathers in grading colours is by Carlotta Actis Barone. The apricot version is the one photographed but it is available in black and purple as well. This is going to be a red carpet dress if I ever seen one and the fact that my favourite colours have been used for Carlotta Spring Summer collection made me spent a long time perusing at every single garment on display.This dress is called " Day Queen", inspired by the "Magic Flute" by Mozart.
Another pretty number for another red carpet outing. The Papagena dress in silk with with feathers is available in orange, green and black as well. The referral to the opera is very strong with the use of feathers that enriched luxuriously these two outfits.
Papageno long dress available in silk or cotton lycra in two different versions of prints. As you can see the print s are an elaboration of feathers patterns.The same dress is available in a shorter length and this print is part of a line where shorts, t-shirts, leggings, catsuit and sleeveless tops can be mixed together or just as a part of an outfit. I would not know what to choose everything is so beautiful.

With the Night Queen dress we end the Carlotta Actis Barone mini show. The marble print cotton is encased in a boned structure and it looks like a cage with the contrasting colour strips. During the show at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout, the press has been full of praise for the Italian born designer.
Korean Soojin Lee has taken  inspiration for her collection from the Byzantine art. Think of mosaics, colours, big gems. This dress is white but with this insert that look like a stained glass window in some church. Blue, gold, orange are the colours chosen for this line of clothing, where the print is present in many variations.
This dress is fabulous. If you think it is in a picture just imagine how it can be in real life. It is an explosion of colours with "gems" sewn into it. The cut is very 1960s, the colours remind me of something a young Twiggy would have worn and the big gems sewn in a cross motif call the reference to the Byzantine art.
This skirt has the cross motif that  refers to the Byzantine theme of the collection. Bright colours for this premium line with pink, green orange, purple. It is a collection highly wearable, let's hope that Soojin Lee will be stocked in UK soon, we need colour for our gloomy summer.
