Qasimi - London Fall 2009
(LONDON) For their third collection, Qasimi designers Khalid bin Sultan AlQasimi and Elliott J. Frieze pulled out all the stops in terms of both their decadent black gothic designs (topped off with Harry Winston jewels, Alison Tod headwear and Terry De Havilland lace-up boots and sandals) and the amazing names on their model roster. The collection was as unrelentingly glamorous as the models sporting the garments: an all-star line-up including Erin O'Connor, Lily Cole, Jade Parfitt, Jasmine Guinness, Liberty Ross, Jacquetta Wheeler, Yasmin Le Bon and Carmen dell'Orifice, who savoured her catwalk stroll in an extravagant fox fur-trimmed dress. The collection also mixed Italian silks, cashmere, Orylag, python and eel in the structured jackets paired with trousers, the bustle skirts and the flowing, body-skimming dresses. The final image of the models standing together provided a striking tableau vivant of the dark side of romanticism.
