Willow Fall 2010

In my constant quest to discover new designers I went to the Willow Fall 2010 presentation yesterday afternoon.

I didn’t know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Australian designer Kit Willow designs for a sexy strong woman who’s in control, yet has a soft delicate side.

I loved the strong dark commanding pieces in the beginning, which lead to prints, then soft nudes, tomato reds and bubble gum pinks.

Nudes have very much been a Spring 2010 trend, so I was surprised to see so many nude pieces in this collection.

The ruffles on these looks were beautiful and perfectly counterbalanced the moody dark pieces we expect from a Fall collection.

Touches of glamour came from the sequined pink dresses, a red jumpsuit plus a peak shouldered red dress.

Top models such as Anja Rubik, Karlie Kloss and Australian model Abbey Lee stormed the runway in wedged heels. The black heels paired with the nude looks were distracting, but they worked well with other pieces.

A floaty chiffon dress worn by Abbey Lee closed the show, which was paired with matching pants.

As you can see from my video, I had a very good view in the front row.
