LFW preview: Michael van der Ham

19 February 2010


Yesterday afternoon we joined designer, Michael van der Ham, and his stylist, Clare Richardson, as they cast models for his Saturday show with Fashion East. Even though Michael worked until 3am, he was surprisingly perky and seemed quite relaxed. This is his second season with Fashion East after all. As the models came, walked, and left, Michael and Clare showed me through his AW '10 collection. The London-based Dutch designer has become known for his collage dresses that bring a pure hit of luxe to the London catwalk. And this season's collection has luxe in spades, while also proving that Michael is set for the international stage. Bold, eccentric and a little bit bonkers, but totally wearable! We were allowed to take a sneaky snap of the rail of clothes, to give you a little sense of what to expect, but these colourful prints don't even hint at the cool romance of the collection.
