Whilst at the Nasir Mazhar show, I got distracted by a crowd going into another showspace in the Topshop area. Intrigued, and off schedule, I quickly flashed my pass and I was into the unknown.
What greeted me was the sound of birds singing and a catwalk with ornate room dividers placed down the middle with vases of fresh flowers. I grabbed someone’s seat (sorry) and waited for the show to begin. The Meadham Kirchhoff collection was a flirtatious and playful affair, the collection was reminiscent of opulent eighteenth/nineteenth century Paris, with many of the models wearing hats or ribbons in their hair. They also wandered around, stopping to pick flowers or lick icing from a cupcake. Meadham Kirchhoff’s trademark pieces are “feminine designs that are considered and executed in an old fashioned manner” and this was certainly that, however, there were signs of modernity, one design featured a Mickey Mouse tshirt, and another had a white denim jacket. Rich reds, pastel blues, deep blacks and sparkling golds were the theme of this collection, fit for a Queen. Or a Kate Middleton.
