COLLECTION| Prophetik AW12
Prophetik fused a hard-hitting message with high-fashion for day two of Vauxhall Fashion Scout's fashion week. Opening with a short video presenting the harsh realities of poaching in South Africa, spectators were reminded of the real costs of certain high-end fashions.
Inspired by Princess Grace, the show kicked off to a heavy-bass, house track, setting the pace for the show, whilst a small-set orchestra waited in the wings. A graceful, bridal inspired collection took to the runway, emphasising the grace of the show's source of inspiration. Elegant dresses shifted from pale, creamy hues to deeper shade, and black; elaborately adorned with lace embroidery. The equestrian theme was noted through the footwear- black equestrian boots- and the collection's mixed tweeds and oxblood-reds; adding an English countryman feel to the show.A collection of gold and navy brocade evening gowns with exposed backs, took pride of place to add ultimate glamour to the otherwise Victorian shilouettes, tied back with tight knotted up-do's pulled fresh off the face, with make up just a fresh, blushed checks and heavy brows. The show ended with a remix of timeless Houston classic, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody", as the Collection took one last walk along the runway; an electric end to the show.VFS ContributorFollow her @vic123xPhotography: Rowan Papier
