Pinned and tucked to create exaggerated points and shapes, the dresses were paired with patent Dr Martens boots and hair was teased into ‘bat ears’.
Spikes and studs have been seen all over London Fashion Week – in the audience and on the catwalk and Alice seemed to have cottoned on to this with lines of spikes creating a reptilian effect on draped cardigans.
The penultimate day of London Fashion Week saw sequins, spikes and swirling prints – what will tomorrow bring?
