London: Holly Fulton wanted to explore duality for her Autumn / Winter 2015 collection – the tough and the girly, night and day, decadent and demure, covered and revealed. Inspiration came from the obscure cult eighties TV series ‘Tales of the Unexpected’ and Cecil Beaton’s eccentric sisters Baba and Bibi Beaton. Fulton’s muses were a collective of party girls – from the 1912 underground London nightclub ‘The Cave of the golden Calf’ all the way to Manchester’s ‘Hacienda’. Models walked down the catwalk wearing Mongolian fur trimmed printed coats over lingerie-inspired slip dresses and camisoles, mini-dresses sported delicate crystal spaghetti straps and shift dresses were fully crystalized with multiple stones. Tops made of sculpted organza roses were paired with slim skirts and high-waisted trousers. Holly Fulton’s party girl is sexy, eccentric and up to mischief. – Diego Sanchez
