Erdem - London Fashion Week Spring 2008
Custom-made taffetas and silks in black and white were the predominant fabrics for Erdem Moralioglu, who became known after winning the Fashion Fringe in 2005. Stating that he "wanted to put things together that didn't go together" with his Spring 2008 collection, Moralioglu paired a cropped vest with a long black gown and a bowler hat with a chiffon dress. He also showed bauble skirts, taffeta biker jackets, knee-length bodice dresses, as well as some pleated numbers, but it was with the long evening dresses covered in abstract botanical prints and worn with strappy thongs in yellow and red patent leather that he showed a sophisticated side to his already surreal vision of fashion.
