SS18 was a continuation of The Body | Part 1, as part of our 12 month examination of our relationship with the human body. The Body | Part 2 was a creative homage to Natasha Baker the “Horse Whisperer.” Natasha is a GB Paralympic dressage eleven-time gold medalist who suffers from Transverse Myelitis.
Inspired by Natasha’s piercing sense of clarity and calm in the face of challenge; we saw precision in colour-block pleated skirts, striped sequin embroideries, transparent flocked organza and the weightlessness of printed silk satins. Devore silks, named after Natasha’s former horse “Woody” are woven in a pattern based on the formation of a galloping horse.
Our unique catwalk casting included a diverse lineup of models with disabilities, plus sized models and models from a multitude of ethnic backgrounds.
