A Bracknell based fashion designer has marked her presence in London Fashion Week with the launch of her latest collection, Iridescence.
Vaishali Ragunathan, who graduated from Guildford College in 2003 has a reputation for creating timeless designs with a contemporary twist.
Her presence at the Royal Horse Guard Hotel was certainly one not to be missed as she brought to life her collection celebrating different tones of hot pinks and purple.
The curated collection featured everyday wear, overlays, jackets and of course her signature dramatic piece.
Vaishali said: “This was the first proper London Fashion Week in 2 years. In Covid we had to do it digitally and then last year there was social distancing. Even though the Queen’s death was in the air, which meant that there was no music, the atmosphere was electric.
“There were about 350 people there which is the most there have been in a few years, it was just amazing.”
The art-deco style of the Horse Guard Hotel complimented V’s style perfectly, blurring the line between the virtual and the terrestrial world.
Her collection ‘Iridescence’ has been designed as an optical phenomenon where the surface of the clothes gradually change colours as the angle of view changes.
The show opened with a Hot Pink Silk Jacket complimented by a Digital Printed Velvet Collar, back panel, and cuffs. Each outfit marked with a profusion of digital printing, embroidery, handmade lace, ombre dying and playful smocking.
V added: “Everyone went the extra mile this year because it has been so long since London Fashion Week had such a large presence.
“It was my fourth year showing and such an amazing atmosphere despite the devastating news of the Queen’s death.”
