Sadie Clayton, who just a year ago was a student studying fashion at Kingston University, debuted at London Fashion Week uniquely and in true style. Her AW14 collection was held at St Giles Church, a small yet sublime church lit only by the antique chandeliers from the gold coated ceilings. As expected, the entrancing atmosphere was not let down by her collection.

Six models, sporting beautifully slicked back hair and strong bronzed make up, almost glided down the church aisle wearing a multitude of black and bronzed copper. All ensembles created a strong, yet feminine silhouette, including some with magnificent copper neck braces, a personal favourite, which added to the ‘copper girl’ theme that generated a lot of attention for Sadie during graduate fashion week last year. The models wore high patent black platform shoes, a collaboration with Charlene Ong, that at the same time as being sharp and geometric were also sensuously curved very much matching the feminine strength of the clothes.

Speaking to the audience confirmed Sadie’s debut as a great success – there was a lot of love in that church! It was certainly a pleasure to watch the whole process from start to finish – Sadie and her team demonstrating a keen eye for the smallest detail from the timing and spacing of the models to the music accompanying their high priestess type procession. The collection showed off Sadie’s talent and passion for unique design; she has pushed boundaries once again and I think it’s safe to say we are all itching to see what she comes up with next.
