Modern cuts and designs such as floor length trousers, baby doll style tops and dresses, peplum tops and fitted dresses dominate the black and white collection.
Camilla Franks’ Spring/Summer 2012/13 collection, Gypset, is an explosion of shades. Embellishments of Swarovski Crystals, sequins and beading are seen widely throughout the collection.
Lisa Ho presented a collection with paisley and stripes held up against palm and hibiscus prints. Colours include neutrals, citrus, bright blue and green and white.
Sophisticated, baroque prints, brushed suede and glittering tulle all punctuated a predominantly white collection of Ellery.
