Louise Gray is a marvel. She had placcy bags for hats, silver foil for earrings and her own special woven fabric for clothes. She is queen of the colour clash with ensembles that work a runway straight to the street. Eye-catching, YES! Statement making, YES! Never a dull moment with our Louise, tangerine, custard creme, dream. Her beautifully structured pieces took our breath away… and did you see the boots? Saturated blocks of an intense hue that worked a total look from toe to tip.
Louise’s work involves painstaking detail and attention as she adorns a body with beyond patternage… but let us not overlook her beautifully cut shapings. Swinging into action, this season sees Gray’s girls strut out in a blaze of intricate detail. Coats, frocks, knits, tops and bottoms, now is the time to let the clothes own you rather than the other way around.
