Ukrainian- born, London-based designer’s Natasha Zinko collections and shows keep surprising every season since her precious debut on the fashion scene. This time, the designer presented her Spring-Summer 2017 Ready-To-Wear collection at Hamilton Place Roof Terrace in Mayfair for London Fashion Week.As usual Zinko’s newest collection was an interactive show/exhibition. All over the Hamilton Place’s building models were posing wearing beautiful and original Zinko’s designs, whilst acting everyday house works from laundering and cooking to dancing at the roof top terrace. Throughout the ‘house-like’ space, old pieces from prior collections were hung from clotheslines.
The guests were able to take pictures with models, chat with them and enjoy their. hospitality. It was a very unusual fashion show with even more unusual designs. As always Zinko’s collection was very playful and colourful with feminine details and accessories and her statement detail – mink fur slippers. The main colours of the collection were dusty pastels and bright yellow, green and pink. Models wore beautiful dresses with cut-outs showing skin, cullote style jeans, denim and slip-on dresses and romantic, oversized shirts, that were styled together with beautiful hats, midi box-like bags and mini shoulder bags, that are a must-have for the upcoming Spring season. A part of her fine jewellery line was also presented during the show, that was beautifully displayed on the table.
