AW17 ‘Winter is Coming’ Fashion Show

Last Friday, the 6th of October, we hosted our biggest Fashion Show to date in aid of the fantastic charity, Street Child.  The event was a huge success, and we would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came and made the evening so memorable!

The Fashion Show was based around five key looks, taken from our Autumn / Winter 17 collections. The show started off with the ‘Winter is Coming’ set. The models wore all things Winter, with luxurious fur lined coats from Joseph and M.i.H taking centre stage alongside iconic Men’s wax jackets from Belstaff and timeless silhouettes from S Max Mara. 

Next up, was brand of the moment Rixo London. The catwalk was flooded with sumptuous silk garments, adorned with gorgeous hand-painted prints which have a vintage-inspired feel to them. Only two years old, this brand has already graced the pages of Vogue and has a steady following of fashion bloggers and magazine editors.  If you would like to know more about this British brand, please take a look at our previous Rixo blog post here!

The third look, ‘Style Hunter’ contained some of our favourite niche brands at Collen & Clare. From the laid back appeal of Ottodame, to the quirky finishing touches that were seen on the Inno collection,  these are brands which no ‘Style Hunter’s’ wardrobe should be without.

‘Icons’, saw our models walking the iconic fashion power houses, which sit in Collen & Clare, on the runway. Luxurious and timeless, brands such as S Max Mara and Eileen Fisher were shown, paired with Mulberry accessories which are available to buy in our Southwold store. Gibson took centre stage for our menswear department, with men dressed in classic tailored jackets, teamed with Citizen of Humanity jeans for a casual appeal.

Diane von Fursenberg’s Autumn / Winter 17 Collection closed the show, displaying their new Chief Creative Officer, Johnathan Saunder’s passion for print and vibrancy. The collection contains playful mix – and – match patterns, which adorn luxurious silk dresses and shirts. Accessories were seen in leopard print pony skin for a controlled contrast.

The night ended with delicious cocktails from the cocktail bar ‘Zizzy‘, which was a huge hit. We would like to thank our generous suppliers and friends who kindly donated gorgeous gifts which sat underneath the ‘Giving Tree’. These were up for grabs for those who bought raffle tickets, with all proceeds going to Street Child. We would like to also say a special thank you to Serin Hair Dressing in Southwold for working their magic backstage!  If you were unable to make the event, but would be interested in attending future events, please sign up to our mailing list where you will be informed of the latest news from Collen & Clare!
