The show also sent us a few AW18 teasers from some of the participating brands for our readers to enjoy:
A heady and intoxicating collection inspired by a strong, unwavering sense of self. With a spirit of attitude and luminous energy, the AW18 collection from Bluebella blends together timeless and modern fabrics, with contrasting textures, around a colour palette infused with a crushed berry hue.
Inspired and influenced by the exhilarating landscape of a coastal cliff path, the collection creates a feeling of drama and escapism. A lingerie and nightwear collection of modern sensual expression. Full collection RRP range, £12 – £48.
AmaElla is a new sustainable and ethical lingerie and nightwear brand launching to trade at Dessous London. Their debut collection is made from the finest organic cotton and produced under strict social practices, AmaElla caters for conscious women.
Being the first sustainable lingerie brand launched through crowdfunding in the UK, AmaElla raised £12,500 to produce its first lingerie and nightwear lines. With a strong, long-lasting proposition (lingerie that looks new even after 50 washes), AmaElla’s holistic approach to sustainability looks not only at the sourcing process but also at the aftermath of the garment.
The AW18 collection from Dora Larsen sees the brand push new boundaries with both colour and design. Styles are kept minimal with the focus on colour and fabrication as per Dora Larsen’s signature style, however new details appear such as 3 pleat darts on mesh cups, strappy backs and cut outs.
A wide variety of shapes have been also been added; half pad balconettes, full cup unlined underwires, triangles with removable pads, bodies, soft cup bras and even strapless styles. Additionally, the size range has grown, catering from 30-38 back, A-E cup and briefs XXS-L.
Continuing their modern fashion focused take on lingerie design, the 2018 collection from Dreamgirl is chock full of crossover pieces to die for. Moody hues of midnight blue, slate, smoky pinks and deep purples bind the dreamy collection together with splashes of iridescent mesh to mesmerise and demand attention.
Along with unique textures of geometric lace and flocked velvet mesh; harnesses, chains and pearls grace and decorate the body beautifully. Illusory features boast clever design; enhancing the figure, allowing for maximum comfort and most importantly versatility to assist with the inevitable undress.
