Central Saint Martins graduate, Natasha Zinko exhibited her SS14 collection in the Vestibule at Freemasons Hall. Whilst flutes of champagne and handmade chocolate hearts floated around, the space was packed with excited guests, eager to see Natasha’s work.
Taking inspiration from the Campanula flower, more commonly known as the Bell flower which is commonly found in Natasha’s native Russia; Natasha strives to transport her spectators to another world. A world set in a different time, a time of innocence and playfulness. Fusing her love of 18th century fashion and the structural aspects of the bell flower, Zinko has created a distinctive silhouette which emphasizes the female form in an awfully seductive matter.
The designs in her collection are fabricated using anything from neoprene, to organza to French lace; in floral inspired hues – lilac, egg shell blue, ochre, salmon and French grey. Structured panels and feminine layers created opulent glamour and each look was accessorised with a stylized hat and a piece of Natasha Zinko’s trademark jewellery.
