It was union of urban fashion force on Monday 18th at London Fashion week. Converse united with Fashion East at the Topshop show space in the Tate Modern to incorporate Converse’s iconic Chuck Taylor’s into each catwalk look as envisioned by designers Ashley Williams, Claire Barrow and Ryan Lo, under the wing of British design icon Lulu Kennedy.
Looks were playful and colourful, more typical of Spring shows, which captured the imagination of the audience. Bold pops of colour and oversized bows maintained an element of fun, which tied in (no pun intended) with the experimental use of the Chucks, with gauze and chiffon coloured laces to highlight the bright pops in fabrications.
The clothing was a success in its creativity and eccentricity; however as for the plastic babies carried down the runway by the models, I can safely predict that this will not be a burgeoning trend.
