Spring-Summer 2012 – It was a very kooky collection represented by the glittered eyelids and eyebrows perceptible from under the variety of different coloured sunglasses which looked like they had come straight out of the laboratory. It was nostalgic of the sixties thanks to the bouffant style beehives and cotton dresses in red or blue and white stripes. An innocent appearance was extracting from the tea dresses, the cotton pieces features dots of coloured appliqué maintaining a cute and bubbly guise. Nautical stripes were prominent, they generally fell vertical, although were juxtaposed with horizontal and diagonally striped patch-worked aprons. Wide mesh striped knits were thrown into the mix, as were fur coats of mustard and green, this was alongside graph paper like embroidery. The finale of black dresses were embossed with glittering beads, leather, ribbon fringing and flowers. An amalgamation of textiles and prints made for an interesting collection.
