AW’11: The Reaction

Here are some of our favourite quotes about the AW’11 collection shown at London Fashion Week….

“This sophisticated collection was filled with skinny silhouettes, piles of fur and a dash of sparkle… This collection was Wakeley at her polished best” – WWD

“White and black cocktail dresses substituted by flashes of orange, sophisticated and meticulous details of beads and sequins.” –

“A modern edge was added by way of bound leather waistbands above full black skirts and one orange dress with a studded, drawstring neckline and a heavily gold embellished midriff that became a smattering of sequins above and below the waist was a powerfully sexy moment, while dark gold chain mail decoration gave a less powerful and more sultry feel to evening wear”-

“Well structured, very feminine, appealing to chic without losing the wearable and practical. Über sexy !!! “ – Wearable Trends

“The colour palette of black, camel, orange and gold was simple yet striking and while the show started with structured shapes in heavy materials such as wool and fur, the beaded dresses and antique sequins were a refreshing contrast” –

“…the overall feel of the Amanda Wakeley collection was clear – luxe, power-dressing for the no-fuss female.” “The Amanda Wakeley autumn/winter 2011 collection is for the fiercest woman who knows what she wants and when she wants it. Glossy and groomed to perfection, this is the sort of women we all, at some point, wish we could be.” –
