On February 10th I attended the A/W 2012 Presentation of emerging London fashion designer Misha Vaidya, who presented her fairytale-inspired collection, Crown Jewels, for her line By Misha. Guest were swept away into an enchanted land as statuesque models emerged in bedazzling pieces, complemented by loose, flowing waves and whimsical makeup.

The collection drew inspiration from storybook fairytales, and featured romantic ruffles, dreamy free-flowing chiffon and adventurous embellishments. Even when the models weren’t moving the clothing looked like they were delicately floating in the air, as they softly clung onto the contours of the figures they were draping. The base colors of most of the garments were black and gold, and featured rich jewel tones, emerald, fuchsia, purple, mustard, turquoise and royal blue.
