[I]f there’s one designer you can count on to produce an enchanting show, it’s Sophia Webster. Previous hits include a Frozen-themed collection for AW17, a candy-cane soiree and a mermaid laundrette. For spring / summer 2018, the fantasy footwear designer has set her sights on now on the magical mythical creatures of them all: flower fairies.
Amongst the chaos of London Fashion Week, Webster’s woodland wonderland is a place of pure romantism (kudos also to fashion’s go-to set designer Shona Heath). Sophia’s ethereal fairy muses are framed in tableaus and adorned with her footwear, handbag and mini ranges with soft colour washes of makeup (courtesy of makeup maestro Sam Bryant, using Revlon beauty products). Fierce showstopper boots designed for Titania, Queen of the Fairies, feature encased gems and antique brooch inspired crystals, whilst wisteria prints, pearls and ribbon trims create a more feminine feel.
