I stayed up right until the very end to watch the Olympic Closing ceremony (about 2 in the morning) but it was definitely worth it. The music was amazing, but what I loved was that British Fashion finally (and literally) took centre stage.
Here are some of the highlights, that I’d like to add to my to-do list.
These dresses were all wonderful
These were my two favourite dresses. Georgia May Jagger in Victoria Beckham and Jourdan Dunn in Jonathan Sunders and Stephen Jones (the impressive 21 feather headress). I’m definitely putting a skater style dress on my to-do list and I love that bold strip of gold down a white dress.
I also loved the hooped dresses that the dancers wore when Annie Lennox performed, can we bring back wire under structures for dresses?? Im tempted! They were also reminiscent of Sweeny Todd (I’ve made a Mrs Lovett costume before!)
I loved these dancers with Russell Brand in giant white… (I don’t really know what to call them…) almost like jacket/wing/ back decorations?? teamed with some great stripy tights
One look I won’t be trying… Jessie J in an Ice-Skating style nude suit.
And I couldn’t end without mentioning the Spice Girls ( I was quite impressed with Geri’s updated version of the Union Jack tea towel dress).
What an amazing night! And I never thought it would give me so many ideas, now I definitely need to get to the fabric shop.
