Holly Fulton is known for her signature bold prints and love affair with embellishments and this LFW, she took us back to the 70s when printed motifs were at their peak. Looking to Noosha Fox, singer and pop siren as her muse, Holly Fulton showed us how to dress for “woozy summer days, glittering nights and lazy morning lounging”.


The collection varied in colour and texture throughout making it quite a spectacle to watch. Although there was a definite and strong 70s theme running throughout, each look was unique and different which allowed Holly to broaden and showcase her dexterity and exploration of bold aesthetics.

The colour palette was sweet and fresh, opting for delicate violets, sugary lilacs, powder pinks, denim blues, warm greys and flashes of faded neon, a nod to this summer’s hottest trend. The hair and makeup was as whimsical as the focus of the collection, with frivolous curls pinned to the side and over-sized retro sunglasses.


Holly Fulton’s show stopping pieces in this collection were most definitely the textured cork skirts and dresses that had everyone double-taking the models in disbelief. Inspired by the geometric concrete freezes of William Mitchell, the use of cork demonstrated once again that fashion has no boundaries and is in many ways synonymous with science and material engineering.

Our favourite pieces from this Royal College of Art graduate’s collection were the series of denim looks, each with layering and geometric prints.
