After receiving a package on Fashion Week morning, I was extremely excited, and to my surprise it was a beautiful limited edition handbag by the lovely Omar Mansoor in a luxurious red.
This luxurious red was to form the centre piece of the ‘Coddington’ collection and it was easy to see the inspiration behind the name, being the iconic Grace Coddington with her scarlet locks. Grace has been a trailblazer of style, creating some of the most iconic images as Creative Director for US Vogue for 30 years.
Red being the colour of strength, courage and independence flowed beautifully through Mansoor’s SS19 collection, as the models strode down the catwalk in full length statement dresses, draped elegant midi dresses and powerful two-pieces with blouses. It was a fiercely feminine collection and easily transferable from day to night.
