Natalie B. Coleman Presentation – AW19 in collaboration with The United Nations Population Fund.
It was a pleasure to attend Irish designer Natalie B. Colemans presentation at LFW this season, a desirable and wearable collection, with meaning.
Stems and petals were strewn across the floor, setting the scene for the ‘sisters’, wearing hand knits, printed maxi dresses, rouched puff skirts & slogan sweaters.
This Rams head/Reproductive knit was a firm favourite, undoubtedly signifying the work of the UNFPA.
“Natalie’s inspiration from the sisters’ collection comes from a deep engagement with the indispensable work of UNFPA, the United Nations Sexual and Reproductive Health Agency. UNFPA is working to meet the critical need for family planning, to prevent maternal deaths and to end harmful practices against women and girls.
The collection symbolizes the collaborative power of sisterhood: the coming together of women to mobilise and build the support systems required to fulfill the pledge of the ICPD – the promise of rights and choices for all”.
Blacks, Whites & Reds – AKA my favourite colour palette.
This silk satin motif slip is absolutely gorgeous!
This black rouched dress & skirt gives me Molly Goddard vibes. Feminine silhouettes styled in a romantic/gothic way will always be the looks I’m drawn to. Not sure if my photos are picking up the block pink eyeshadow, contrasting the looks perfectly.
Finally, this stunning wedding dress made from Irish linen, ft. Carrickmacross Lace capped sleeves and embroidered red petals. The photo does no justice, but the sleeves of this dress ft. the female reproductive system, as does the front bodice!
10% of all profits from the collection will be donated to the UNFPA.
