Corrie Nielsen SS13
The botanical influence from Kew Gardens shone through in Corrie Nielsen’s stunning collection at Somerset House last Friday. Softly structured dresses depicting the shapes and forms of flowers positively glowed in pastel hues of peony, blue and the palest shade of gold.
From the sound of singing birds through to the delicate floral headpieces (courtesy of Emma Yeo) the show was a beautiful landscape of harmony and natural beauty. The final gown was my absolute favourite, a breath-taking wedding dress which enveloped the body in large sculpted petals beneath which a long train gracefully flowed.
After seeing Corrie Nielsen use the subject of flora in such new and unexpected ways, I can’t wait to see what she will produce next.
