Alberta Ferretti AW14

Women of the forest in raw mossy tweed, and shoes wrapped like vines around their feet

Initial reaction:

A woman of the forest who has handcrafted her gowns from the materials and inspiration she sees around her. Exotic feathers and roses set upon a mossy palette, fauna detailing and thatched tweed. The added luxury of metallics and intricate beadwork created femininity within the forest.

How they wore it:

Bare faced make up and loosely tied back hair supported the natural feel behind the collection and left all the talking to the heavily detailed garments.

Shoes:

The footwear reiterated the idea of woman and nature, with feathered straps spiralling up the model’s legs like vines from the forest floor.

Prints:

Scenes of nature with birds and woodland landscapes were printed onto dresses and embroidered onto woollen jumpers.

Atmosphere:

The space was set in almost complete darkness, as models glided down the runway to fluttery tones of classical piano.
