Meadham Kirchhoff Spring/summer 2012 collection at London Fashion Week

Not titled ‘A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing ‘ but ‘A Wolf in Lambs Clothing’, 
It was every little girls dream from the runway with arches made of pastel colour balloons,
the gaggle of little ballerinas pirouetting in the middle 
and the bigger girls in blonde wigs and pastel satin baby doll slips playing with lipstick and powder puffs.  .
The models emerged in childlike inspired clothes, blue pinafore dress with large multi coloured buttons layered over a multi coloured checked dress with tie,
red skirt with heart shaped pockets and a smiley face heart shaped bib 
and spangly gym style knickers with tartan bloomers peeping through,
Slightly more grown up was the next procession of models in 18th century French court inspired garments – baby blue coat dress embellished in gold brocade but with cheeky powder puffs peeping out of the breast pockets, 
and a baby pink leotard with short cape attachment and blue lacy blouse underneath - here Marie-Antoinette hasn't lost her head but her crinoline skirt!.   
There were cheeky elements in the guise of showgirl style white crystal embellished bustier leotard with fluffy skirt 
and a baby pink cardigan with peek-a-boo holes revealing a sequined bra underneath.  
 All gloriously over the top and very  sugar and spice even down to the wedge shoes which were trimmed with metallic frills top and bottom and looking very much like slices of cake.
