Believe it or not but after 7 seasons, this was actually the first time I had been invited to view Holly Fulton’s collection in the flesh. With such a huge fan base and Fashionista’s dying to get hold of her new collection, I could see why Holly’s show is always sort after. What interests me more though about Holly is not her popularity but the way she can create a girlie and glamorized collection out of any inspiration she chooses. As soon as the models started off showing the new S/S collection, Memories and inspirations starting to flood back to me for a 70’s Spanish holiday with cork heels and boho hair. As the collection unfolded , more romantic and hippy styles became obvious and helped ease us into this old Hollywood glamour crowd that likes to escape to Cannes for the weekend. Fan clutches and prints highlighted the spanish flamenco injection , while the cropped jackets must have been taken from a Bull fighter in a large gladiator-size arena. Other prints such as fish and dots gave the collection it’s summer edge but the real kicker was the loose yet delicious cuts that provided pallets for bold and adventurous prints as well as a very sexy silhouette.
