Jena.Theo's Spring/Summer 2011 Collection on the Catwalk at London Fashion Week

The designer duo’s (Jenny Holmes and Dimitris Theocharidis) collection titled ‘Bandoliers’ is inspired by the spirit of India with a touch of 19th Century Victorian British colonialism.
Silk turbans adorned the models’ heads........
...... handcrafted Indian trim embellished flowing fabrics and skinny pants whilst fabric versions of the bandoliers feature as low slung belts, cuffs, necklines and garters.
Denim creates contrasting structure in shorts, jackets and dresses. Colours are either block pastel hues of iris blue and dusty violet pink or raw ecru. The raw ecru splashed with hand painted colour was inspired by the Holi festival when coloured pigment and herbs are thrown in a joyful celebration.
Stiletto platform shoes were adorned with raw painted gold leaf, as was the model’s arms, ankles, stomachs and even one nipple.
The pink shorts and top set adorned with intertwined bandolier belts and Indian trim. And the corseted iris blue mini dress with a graduating hemline at the back , Indian trim down one side and a on the other  a take on the Victorian bustle.
The show ended with the duo’s interpretation of the Victorian dress with a mini dress version of the cage crinoline
