Sweet Life - Lauren Bagliore Runway Coverage

Lauren Bagliore

lg fashion week s/s 2011

Who says spring fashion has to be all flowers and lace? Lauren Bagliore proves a little edge goes a long way when it comes to creating a chic collection for spring.

Black and white ruled the runway, and models sauntered down in comfy fabrics like jersey, cotton-tulle and gauzy knit. Elegant draping and asymmetrical touches, like stitching that zig-zagged across an ivory tulle dress, and one-shouldered dresses lent a quirk to the simple collection. Even the leather pieces, like a skirt that had leather draped elegantly in front, looked cool and cosy.

Standouts were the boleros with layered fabric in stripes around the shoulders, convertible jersey tops with a cowl necks worn over the head like a hood, or loose around the shoulders, and our favourite of the night was the silk draped dress with the charmeuse under-layer.

A great spring collection, and not a floral in sight.
