“Antarctica, Robert Falcon Scott and extremophiles” are all stated as influences for this ethical collection from Ada Zanditon, a graduate of London College of Fashion who went on to work with the late, great Alexander McQueen as well as Gareth Pugh before establishing her own label.
Zanditon's presentation at the On/Off Showcase in Victoria House, Bloomsbury projected a catwalk show in film form, followed by time for the crowd to examine the clothes up close on static dummies.
In the absence of live models to shoot, our photographer's eye was drawn to those in attendance. From the fabulous photos we conclude the following are definitely ON:
- Fancy fascinators
- Elaborate and/or challenging facial decoration
- Oversize velveteen bow ties
