Elsa Palomino Spring/Summer 2012 collection at London Fashion Week

Although the collection is titled ‘A Fairy Dance’, inspiration came partly from the traditional Manila shawl of Madrid.
In the 18th Century, beautiful hand embroidered silk shawls made their way from China and featured peonies, pagodas and dragons. However soon the patterns changed from their Chinese essence to accommodate the Spanish taste of birds, butterflies and roses.

Palomino’s collection is a mix of these patterns, from oriental patterns of pagodas on bold red gowns 
to the laser cut white appliqué butterfly and floral motifs on black gowns. 
But a fairy dance feel was there in the lightness and the ethereal movement of the fabrics,
the cobweb sleeves and bodies adorned with floral embroidery 
and the wonderful flora and fauna headpieces by Angel Amor.
