Emilia Wickstead Spring/Summer 2018

"I WANTED TO CAPTURE that happy, elated feeling of self-expression," said Emilia Wickstead backstage after her spring/summer show, staged at a London Art Deco location that few people knew about. The Harlem Renaissance was the inspiration, and while it could have been reflected with more diversity on the runway, it was certainly in evidence in the clothes. There were wide sunhats tied at the chin, calling to mind those worn in the fields, paired with demure silhouettes and dropped hemlines. There were plays on transparency, perhaps what a modern It girl would like to see more of, especially when paired with some 'mom' jeans and white t-strap heels. There was a pink drop-waisted dress with an alluring cut-out at the chest. And then, of course, the sequinned gowns in rose gold that seemed to be emitting light, drawing smiles on showgoers' faces. Who doesn't love some glamour, especially amidst all the turmoil happening in the world? — Victoria.

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
