limelight Felicity


Once again the amazing looks of young British
designer Felicity Brown knock me down while
reckoning the amount or work each and every
single piece of hers requires.


Felicity's AW 11-12 collection shows her signature
hand-dyed soft layered silk ruffles while reinterpreting
her own take on deconstruction with inspirations from
cubism and tribal markings (cubism was strongly
influenced by African sculpture, after all).


Conceived as a tribal costume, each piece shows a
theatrical layer-upon-layer lure with laced up corsets,
striped maxi skirts and cubist-style printed shirts in 
a palette mainly made of navy, mustard, salmon pink
and white for a glamorous yet romantic 
she-warrior elegance.


I like looking at tribal costumes from all over
the world and the way tribes mark themselves
she wrote on her eponymous website, ”I find
that much more fascinating than minimal
tailoring.


With her artisan approach, her one-off skills in 
silk manipulation and her taste in quality fabrics, 
Felicity came to put her poetic mark anew,
enjoying the limelight she deserves.
