London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014: Emilia Wickstead
Emilia Wickstead Spring/Summer 2014 in review.
By Nausheen Shah
Emilia Wickstead is widely known for her association with the British First Lady and her spring 2014 collection affirmed why she demands such stately recognition. From the alluring lemon-hued suit jackets layered on top of soft pink drop-hem gowns to turquoise and tangerine striped dresses, Wickstead played with her 1950s signature style and turned it into a contemporary womans dream. Models in high-waisted Bermuda shorts and A-line skirts marched to the beat of the rhythm and blues music playing in the background, coupling both the style and times together. While the bright and dainty box-shaped bags from designer Mark Cross were an impeccable accessory choice, it was the end of the collection that really stole the dayclosing with a series of piano printed, silk garments was the perfect fit to Wickstead's tale.
