Paul Costelloe AW11 show at London Fashion Week

Costelloe really does have a large family! LFWSS11 saw his 6 sons taking to the catwalk, this time it was his daughter, Jessica’s turn

The rest of the models wore rustic red blunt cut frizzy wigs which complemented the bright bold colours of the collection’s palette.

The inspiration for the collection was ‘Home Grown Fashion’ using fabrics of tweeds, plaids, and herringbones

These traditional fabrics had been given a face lift with mini skater skirts, short tailored swing jackets and coats, plus the bold splashes of peacock blue, emerald, mustard, burnt orange and fuchsia. Not to be outshone, collars and buttons were large making a statement.

Metallics, plain and patterned, gave retro glamour to the structured dresses rather than the usual sci -fi it’s associated with.

Summing up his collection, Costelloe says”Think of Paris in the late 60s/70s. Simple and chic, as Paris once was.  The ‘femme fatal’ has returned”
