Guest blog: LFW Designer Corrie Nielsen tells us about her SS13 collection 0  

Posted in Celebrity Reporter, Fashion, Guest blog

I’ve lived in London for over a decade and it is one of my favourite cities. I’ve lived all over from San Francisco to Seattle to Seoul, but London’s history is what pulls me in. I trained at London’s Central St Martins and am honoured to show on schedule at London Fashion Week. For each collection I design, I research, research, research and can often be found in old libraries dotting the capital or walking through centuries of the city’s architecture.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew were the starting point of my SS13 collection, which I’ve spent countless hours researching and developing. I cannot wait to present it on the catwalk at London Fashion Week, and then see it in stores and people wearing it. Every spring/summer season sees floral prints and shapes, but wait until you see the show. I’ve really going all out. The collection will feature voluminously sculpted dresses, tailored jackets and shorts and a dramatic colour palette.

I was delighted to be asked to create my own cocktail for London Fashion Week for the May Fair Hotel. What a fun thing to be asked to do. The ingredients are a reflection of the SS13 collection and flavours that I like sipping in a drink. The edible flowers are a brilliant touch added by the May Fair. I’ll really enjoy having a few, well-deserved ‘Corrie Nielsens’ on the Friday after the show! I’ll probably be there around 7pm if you would like to join me.
