(LONDON) So what will the Issa party girl wear next summer? Light chiffon dresses, blouses with hotpants, jodphurs with riding boots and striped blouses, and mini, flirty cocktail skirts and dresses. Designer Daniella Helayel seems to have moved away from her signature style of wild, extravagant prints, and although her collection was high on the luxe element, this time her dresses were more feminine rather than overtly sexy. For night, she had Anouck Lepère strutting down the catwalk in a black mini kaftan, while a parade of strapless white sequined prom dresses set the tone for Issa's take on the red carpet. Highlight: the silk knickers given to every guest to celebrate the launch of Issa's new lingerie line.
