Due to showcasing at Somerset House Designer Showrooms we were only able to attend two runway shows this season, but I must say there were absolutely amazing.

First – Vita Gottlieb SS15 took place at Freemason’s Hall on the 14th of September.

Vita is a London based, emerging fashion designer that we have been following for some time now. Her focus is graphic prints, subtle use of colours and innovative paneling. SS15 collection was full of layering, flowing, summery movements released through a soft yet eye-catching collection.
