Francesca Marotta A/W 12

My first A/W 12 catwalk was the lacy collection from Fransesca Marotta. The outfits presented along the runway were mostly black, fluid, almost gothic-like, with some sporting neon plastic jewellery. The colour red appeared frequently, usually in small details, but also in a long, trailing, laced cape.

The final look for the collection, however, was especially eerie, when the model staggered along the catwalk like a forlorn maiden. A black lace dress trailed behind her, and red eye-liner was applied in such a way, it appeared as if she was weeping tears of blood.

Overall, the collection was beautifully crafted with an evident theme. I am very thankful I managed to secure a front row seat so I could enjoy it fully.
