Favourite Audi Fashion Week picks .... (Winter 2010) 3

UK designer Karen Millen showed a dark and sexy and line. The silhouette was slim, strong and with more than a hint of 80’s tailoring (body con dresses), softened by suede and moleskin. Most of these shapes I’m already seeing at local retail stores, so that was a little disappointing. I was hoping for something…new? Fresh? There were silvers and purplish greys, with black featuring very strongly. Purple dominated in shades of faded lilac.

I loved the supple leather biker jacket and I’m very susceptible to the liberal use of eyelets and studs, appearing on sexy clutches and even knit dresses. The asymmetrical suede skirt was also cute.

Towards the end of the show, formal dresses made of satin, organza and appliquéd lace were revealed. Origami-like folding made for interesting textures and the hems of strapless dresses were staggered to create interesting silhouettes.
