Forgive us whilst we gush about the fabric on display at Emilia Wickstead's SS15 show. The abundance of silks and organzas gently sweeping down the runway reflecting and absorbing light in equal measure was enough to give us a sensory overload. How Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo refrained from reaching out from the front row to grasp at the tactile textures is beyond us, they clearly have super-human refinement that we are yet to master.
The fabric was of course only a small portion of the show's allure with the flattering silhouettes and ingenious structuring establishing an altogether more confident Wickstead woman. The short dresses were short and the sheer fabrics were certainly sheer, both attributes that point to a certain assurance from the designer, one that we found wholly appealing.
It's about time soirée dressing became more seductive we're sure you agree, substitute your floor-length gown for Wickstead's deep V skater dress and add a certain flair to proceedings.
