Charlotte Olympia - #LFW Spring 2017

"Designer Charlotte Dellal's show was a riot of no-expense-spared fun. She took over an Art Deco ballroom off London's Piccadilly for an evening performance of '40s-theme glamour, involving showgirls, dancers, the lot. "I based it on Technicolor movies from the '40s, like Carmen Miranda's which I always love," she said. This is a girl who knows how to entertain. Dellal seated her audience beside a high catwalk, the better to get an eyeful of the footwear. First, she sent out a passage of elegant cream clothes, accessorized with gilded platforms and colorful flat sandals. So far, so regular a fashion show; but then came the carnival of kitsch - a riot of girls dressed in a cocktail of exotic fruit costumes, followed by a troupe of high-kicking dancers dressed in gold swimsuits. After a long day, it brought the house down." -
