Ed Marler SS15 at Fashion East

The CSM graduate makes his runway debut with a dysfunctional family of vampires set to a Kylie Minogue soundtrack

Initial reaction:

A dysfunctional family of club kids turned vampires, clad in the garments they’ve been collecting for centuries – we’re sure Lestat de Lioncourt would be placing a few orders.

The look:

Rich and opulent. For his runway debut, Ed Marler played with ideas of gender, at times going back to a 1700s kind of masculinity. Boys came out draped in lace-trimmed pink silk slips, topped off with jewelled crowns whilst brocade tapestry denim jackets were layered over snakeskin and gold sequinned trousers. 

Marler’s gang:

It was a relief that the final day of London Fashion Week brought with it a new direction for casting, underscoring its storytelling abilities – both Marler and Meadham Kirchhoff worked with street-cast girls and boys. Today was a triumph for Marler, and it served as a reminder of what London should be about.
