This is a guest post by Sarah Driscoll, one of our fabulous competition winners. She’s been hitting the tents at Somerset House as a guest fashion reporter for My Fashion Life to cover as many of London’s spring shows as she can make – find out how she got on when we armed her with a bag full of tickets and sent her packing…
Who: Tiffany Amber
What: Celebrating the ‘Siren of the Nile’, Tiffany Amber’s collection was a love letter to strong, powerful women who are not afraid of glamour, the female form or colour.
Highlights: The rich green, mustard and navy printed silk suits with matching vintage trunk-shaped bags.
Lowlights: The turquoise crepe print dresses were borderline bland when considered next to the rest of the collection.
Overall: Glamour and Africa were the two prevailing themes of Tiffany Amber’s spring 2012 show. Keisha Buchanan and Foxy Brown took Front Row position as flowing dresses slit to the thigh with slashed necklines came down the runway in Quality Street shades of purple, green and golden yellow. The symmetrical prints of deeper, richer blue, green and mustard were the highlight of the show, and featured on straight cigarette pant suits, fitted dresses and even the vintage trunk cases that many of the models carried. Canary yellow and electric blue sheer blouses were also hero pieces, celebrating a feminine confidence that seemed to be the shows predominant attitude; an aura that was further accentuated by the unrelenting use of bold colour throughout the whole collection. Kooky round sunglasses and chunky bright fabric necklaces complemented the strong and exotic collection.
