SORAPOL Fashion Show 20.10.11

The old and the new school avant-garde fashion crowd were out in force last night at Sorapol's S/S 12 collection in St George's Church, Hanover Square. There were even a few celebrity supporters including Miss Jodie Harsh. Padron Tequila cocktails were free flowing, was a bit harder getting hold of the Thai canapĂ©'s, whole pineapples studded with prawns on skewers, rice wraps and palate cleansing slices of exotic fruit, the Thai inspiration coming from the designers heritage. The models slowly tip toed down the aisle to haunting organ music, blasted by blinding spotlights, carrying sculpted wooden platforms like evening bags. The collection was full of colour, exoticism and carnival spirit with a good dose of bling, layers of tulle, cut out and sheer fabrics. We skipped the after party at Movida for a much needed Steak Frites at CafĂ© Boheme on Old Compton Street. I took the above pictures with my iPhone, you can view more detailed pictures here and
