Omar Mansoor SS12 catwalk show at London Fashion Week

Showing at the A La Mode Fashion event was eveningwear couture designer Omar Mansoor.

Inspired by Kensington Palace’s exhibition of the Enchanted Palace and its tale of the seven princesses who once lived there, Mansoor has used only two colours this season: black and shades of pink. 
The black represents the elements of pain, sadness and unrequited love some of these princesses felt whilst the pink symbolises the love and hope some experienced, with the key inspirations taken from the rebellious Princess Charlotte and Queen Mary II.  

The black gowns are elegantly simple mixing satin silks with chiffon and just a touch of Swarovski embellishment. 
The shorter styles are beautifully tailored and would also make great business wear for those days you really need to impress your clients.
The pinks have a lighter and carefree look with shades ranging from light petal pink to the 
deeper fuchsia 
and the styles and embellishments more ornate.

The whole show was caught in an aura of Royalty, on the catwalk and also on the front row where buyers from the Middle East could be spotted including Her Excellencies of Qatar.
