Perfect Darting and Beautiful Dresses: Marios Schwab Spring Summer 2012
by All Things Dark And Beautiful
Marios Schwab Spring Summer 2012
My first on schedule show at the BFC Showspace was so so magical and impressive.
The atmosphere in the huge, very high space was awesome. The dark room was the setting for a large white catwalk with two sheets of white gauze in the middle of the catwalk.
We waited and waited as the final fashion VIP took their seats including Grazia Editor Jo Elvin who sat right in front of me, Suzy Bubble, Diane Pernet of ASVOF and Imran Amed of BOF across from the catwalk from me. The always beautiful Nadja Swarovski sat next to Hilary Alexander and Suzy Menkes and last but never the least the funnest lady in fashion Anna Della Russo in an all white ensemble topped with white feathered hat.
And about 45 minutes after the proposed show time the first girl walked out in the most beautifully cut dress. Every dress had the most perfect darting which flattered the torso and wonderfully shaped skirts which moved effortlessly with the body.
Influenced by the disparity between light and dark , the classic silhouettes and peek-a-boo touches, got everyone up on their feet applauding the designer at Somerset House. Marios’ always subtle adornments were perfect, not a lover of brash and colourful statements myself, Marios’ quiet detailing always impresses and this season was no exception.
A beautiful, stunning collection, also very commercial and wearable. We should be expecting a lot of these looks to be translated onto the red carpets and the socialites of the world.
