Runway Review and Pictures of Alice McCall Spring Summer 2011-2012 RAFW Fashion Week Catwalk Show

2011 RAFW: Alice McCall

Inspired by a Victorian era tea party, Alice McCall sent a collection which beautifully mixed old world charm with It-girl appeal. Prints took centre stage, utilising English florals, blue and white Wedgewood patterns and enlarged scarf prints to recreate the scene at an abandoned garden tea party. Shunning Victorian era stuffiness for flirty silhouettes, Alice kept her dresses short and full skirted, and supplemented with her cheeky shorts and playsuits. Longer lines were injected with flesh-flashing cut outs, or given peek-a-boo appeal in sheer, gauzy fabric. Pleats again came to the party, making for a collection inspired by romance and antiquity, but executed in thoroughly modern way.

  • Trends: Pleats, sheer, jumpsuits, white on white and wall paper prints.
  • Colours: Cream, white, pale mint, nude, peachy, terracotta, navy, gold and black.
  • Accessories: Solid nude ankle boots with curved wooden heels and black and white shell, collar-style necklaces.
  • Key Looks: Scarf print silk jumpsuits, cut-out lace work dresses in white, sheer gauzy dresses and playsuits with sequin embellishment and body-con dresses with Fleur de Lys graphics in gold thread.
