Emilia Wickstead Shows Another Polished Collection
London-based designer Emilia Wickstead is always a glamorous highlight of the London Fashion Week schedule, at the end of last month the New Zealand-born designer debuted her latest collection via an audience-free runway filmed in a fuchsia pink space, Chloe Street writes for the UK’s Evening Standard.
Inspired by classic British and Italian movie heroines, Wickstead, 37, who spent her teenage years living in Milan, delivered a collection infused with the classic polish and neatness of the Italian fashion capital’s famously well-dressed inhabitants, Street reports.
“During lockdown we’ve come to appreciate how clothing can make you feel – it has reminded us about the power of dressing. My aim with this collection – and with every collection – is to make women feel excited about their wardrobe and for women to start planning and visualising how and where they will wear certain items, even at home.”
