So I worked backstage at Christopher Kane today and it was amazing!!His clothes are so beautiful and interesting at the same time.
He started the show with blue gingham printed dresses and skirts which were full of kitch glamour but the most amazing dresses were the bead embellished chiffon silk dresses in pastel pink and yellow with sheer nude panels and perfectly pleated skirts. The models all looked so elegant with the pleated skirts skimming their knees in the soft fabric and their hair in wispy twists.
I also loved the cute shoes that were in pastel pink and yellow and white with cylinder shaped heels and lace up fronts - which reminded me of candy.
When asked what his inspirations for the show were he said he had been watching a lot of 1980's romance movies, which is clearly seen in his clothes. I just love how he can create such feminine creations of beauty but also give clothes a hard edge when he wants to, as seen in his AW09 show.
The front row of the show was undoubtedly packed with some impressive names as Christopher gains global admiration. First to offer their opinion was Anna Wintour. She came backstage before the show to wish him luck and to let him know how beautiful she thought his dresses were. And then there was Donatella Versace and her daughter who made an appearance back stage after the show and even Joan Collins was sitting front row.
However unfortunalty I left my cameral phone in my bag so im not able to share any exclusive pics - i'll leave that to style.com - but I did manage to sneak this pic of C Kane when he was being interviewed by Susie Bubble after the show.
