Go the Length - Maria Grachvogel AW10 Show London Fashion Week
TEXT, SOFIA SHERSHUNOVICH - London + LA Correspondent
EDITED BY: Vivian G. Kelly-Van Zutphen
When: 1pm 19th February 2010
Where: The Waldorf Hilton, London
The Waldorf Hilton rendered an appropriately stunning backdrop for the Maria Grachvogel show which played host to Vogue Editorial and the likes of Yasmin Le Bon and Erin O'Connor. Grachvogel made a statement by opening with the trend of black with a wool flannel dress, double fazed gazar, satin chiffon dress, and the current leather movement with a cool cape. She then proceeded with a striking scarlet gown and a couple of mandatory for this season catsuits. The audience was then eased into her signature palette of stunning patterns - sapphire and chartreuse quarts and kaleidoscope print satin. One of the signature print gowns reminded me of the Jennifer Lopez Versace number that caused some controversy a while back. Bright off-colours also made an appearance and mesmerised with their intriguing hues. The yellows were no usual shade of yellow, the reds weren't any usual red, nor were the greens or even the greys. It was not canary or even blood orange but something new, unpredictable and entirely enticing. Long-length returns this season, and the fabrics are free flowing and dance with your movement.
Maria Grachvogel AW10 Trends: Long dresses, bright off-colours, rich patterns and flowing satin.
