Corrie Nielsen RTW Spring 2013 London Fashion Week
Corrie Nielsen RTW Spring 2013 -Inspired by botanical life, the soft palette of the collection was inextricably perfect for the spring season – as models walked down the runway in cocoon like encasing coats, one felt as if one was watching a metamorphosis, a rebirth if you will. The colors of the clothes, the textures of the fabrics, and the natural inspiration Nielsen drew upon was stunningly poetic. The greenhouse dress – a dress with a boxed peplum in the shape of a greenhouse roof with green leaves surrounding it – was a clear show stopper, alongside its elegantly peplum’d sister, the dip dyed bridal dress. The hair and make-up was reminiscent of a wilder habitat, filled with bright flowers and deadly plants, as bright pink shadows ghost across the models’ eyes, and the hair teased within an inch of its life creating the image of a stylish and beautiful Mother Nature.
