Thursday May 5th saw Kingly Court, a shopping courtyard just off Carnaby Street, London transformed into fashion heaven. The weather was superb, the atmosphere exciting and everyone was enjoying Fashion Garden.
Fashion Garden was conceived by Hayley Baynard and Sarah Cox. With the help of the London Fashion Forum, Hayley and Sarah both students in their final year at the Arts Institute at Bournemouth, brought together a beautiful display of Fashion and Art in the form of a static exhibition and a Catwalk Show.
The exhibition was officially opened by illustrator Daisy de Villeneuve and contained photography, illustrations and textile designs from Netta Laor, Lucy Butler, Elisenda Rusell, Kate Berman, Ria Roberts and Nicola Mole. To following was the Catwalk Show which consisted of 12 new designers Rise and Shine, Nirva and La’Pierre Ltd, Maame Baryeh, Elinor Franklin, Amy Marie Hall, Almost Certainly, Sado Fashion House, Artless, Fazed Out Heidi Mottram, and Tiffany McCall Couture. Each collection had its own take on the floral theme.
