Yesterday I went down to London Fashion Week with fellow fashion blogger, Jo Payton (fashiondetective.co.uk) lusting after some mouth-watering fashion set for SS13. Did we find it – yes.
We had been invited along to Manuela Dack‘s SS13 show in the afternoon – and we didn’t quite know it yet, but we were in for a real treat. After graduating from Central Saint Martins a young Manuela has continued to develop and gain leverage within the notoriously ruthless fashion industry.
Manuela Dack’s SS13 collection was a sophisticated palette of neutrals, gleaming whites with occasion splashes of colour including a bright mango orange tangled in a tassel skirt, to sheer grey fabrics for depth.
As if the low backs and feminine textures weren’t enough, the oh-so delicate silks combined with glossy cut-out leather gave the collection the perfect combination of girlie-esque with a tough womanly edge. After falling in love with the collection personally, Manuela clearly knows what would make a room full of people stop, stare, and fall in love. Oh and ladies you can ditch the traditional heals in light of a new shoe hero – the jelly!
Got to have some? Manuela is stocked online at Avenue 32 and the SS13 collection will be available as of 2013.
