Corrie Nielsen SS12 – London Fashion Week
Anything inspired by Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray is going to have a sinister side, substance, and references to 19th century tailored dress. Corrie Nielsen’s SS12 collection Arbiter Elegantiarum does all this with a japanese twist. The drama in the silhouettes and construction was balanced with a restricted colour palette, hair and make-up. Fabrics were luxurious and carefully edited. No wonder John Galliano picked this true talent for the winner of Fashion Fringe last year.
