Meadham Kirchhoff AW12

Meadham Kichhoff was the show I was most excited to see. The designs brought to life by the duo are both unconventional and uncompromising. To me, it's what fashion should be about; you can't compare their dedicated work to anyone else's. Their AW12 collection was a marvel of eccentric designs. The models pranced round the catwalk, that was transformed into a dance floor, with flashing lights and disco beats, the finale finishing with ABBA, 'Dancing Queen'. The constant clashing of colours, prints and textures worked surprisingly well together. With oompa loomp style face make-up and munchkin-esque hair, the show was not short of a fantastical vibe. Th element of reality must not be erased as beneath the extravaganza are some very wearable items. My favourite show so far, shoes covered in glitter, appliqu├ęd denim and cutesy checked dresses. Pom poms, sequins, embellishments and an overdose of glitter, the show had it all. In the case of Meadham Kirchhoff, more is definitely more.

GET THE LOOK: Customisation is key. Pick up kitsch badges and patches to sew on to shirts/jackets/blazers. Pick up buttons in an array of colours and use them to replace the plain buttons on old shirts. Layer strapless dresses over shirts with the top button done up and then team it with a stripy or glittery pair of coloured tights. Hot pants in animal print or covered in sequins can also be worn over coloured tights. Hair and make-up needs to be just as over the top as the clothes, bright eye shadow, glitter round the eyes and a bold lipstick choice while hair needs to be accessoriesed in the form of bows or pom poms. The more colours and textures used in your look, the better. Dance your way down the street to complete your disco-tastic Meadham Kirchhoff inspired style.
