Saturday the 18th of February saw some of the most exciting new names in fashion take to the catwalk for the House of iKons latest show.
The Millennium Hotel in Mayfair played host to the afternoon and evening House of iKons shows in support of the Prince’s Trust. Hosted by TV personality Jo Shah and organised by the beautiful Savita Kaye of House of iKons, it was a day celebrating the best in the world of fashion. Sometimes it can be so easy to get caught up in the spectacle of London Fashion Week that it can almost seem pointless, but House of iKons diminished this and gives fashion back its voice. It shows fashion is not just threads and stitches, but a force to be reckoned with. It shows the faces behind the designs and the strength of talent just waiting to be discovered.
The evening show saw a performance by girl group Limited Edition open the show, followed by designers Niche Clothing, Streetlethic by Reka Orosz and a beautiful bespoke line from Ana Bella Millinery ft Bel Cappellowa. Raqual Sutherland brought a range of colourful garments just ideal for summer, whilst Sonder Wear turned heads with their playful underwear range. Caroline Coco whirled the audience away with a range of colourful and bold designs, Amirab with their range of beautiful silk scarves and ethnic gowns and beyond Label by Andreea Deaconu showcased a label for all women with a host of beautiful, figure-hugging designs.
A final musical performance came in the form of a beautiful fifteen year old singer Lydia Singer, a further nod to Savita’s penchant for giving a platform to those who might otherwise be unable to reach one. It’s not often a teen is given the opportunity to take center stage – and she took the opportunity and really made it her own.
The final designer of the show was a first in the House of iKons history as Savita Kaye herself announced them – Dimple Amrin. The line was “about women and how they are portrayed in society and the abuse they face.” As well as the designs, models wore striking face paint to depict hardship and abuse – it was truly eye-opening and a really breathtaking way to close the show.
