Leaner meaner cocktail dresses by JW anderson

JW Anderson Cocktail Dresses AW16 at London Fashion Week

A very sixties style cocktail dresses theme with modern attentive design, JW Anderson created a sort of futurism in creative freedom. 

There`s a lot to admire in this collection, folded mini skirt designs with leather capelets, simple gowns with studded belts, dresses with belts and boots and zero sense of longing for retro. The sculpted mini skirts were created by artificial and real hides.

JW anderson british fashion awards 2015 took gold for both men and women`s wear design. And this collection was anticipated by a quote from David Hicks, the British-born interiors designer who died in 1998. “The excitement of today is in the freedom of the individual to make his own choices, and the range of possibilities for which he may choose.”

Something really strange about the venue, Yeomanry House on Kenton Street, the hallways were made narrow by partitioning the room with white walls, and with ‘David Hicks’ quote engraved on the wall, the designer wanted to cage the audience in with the dresses, in order to get absorbed by it.
