Jenny Packham - Autumn/Winter 09
Jenny Packham brought glitz and glamour to the catwalk with her collection of sultry Grecian inspired gowns. The red carpet designer and British bridal wear expert put on a spectacular show. For me, there's just one word to describe her pieces - divine!
Style notes: Fabrics are floaty and silhouettes slinky. The attention grabbing necklines and bejewelled bodices make the dresses real statement pieces. Embellishment rules with subtle hints of old Hollywood glamour, Greek goddess and vintage style. My favourite piece is the yellow dress dipped top to bottom in jet black gem stones and the beaded 1920s hem gave it fantastic movement.
Colour notes: Rich tones of royal blue, yellow, red and purple.
Gossip: A small number of front row critics were not as enthusiastic about the embellishment. One calling some of the pieces "over-kill and gaudy". However the majority ruled that the bejewelled collection was right on-trend for the Winter party season.
Here are my highlights from the catwalk:
