My last presentation for London Fashion Week was so much fun to attend. RIXO hosted a Studio 54 style, 1970’s disco party at Café de Paris in Soho. Designers and best friends Henrietta Rix and Orlagh McCloskey created a sequin and glitter filled showcase. Models of all ages hit the dance floor, grooving to classic tuned like Donna Summers ‘I Feel Love.’ I was handed a cocktail in a disco ball as I descended the staircase into the delightful party atmosphere.
The brand began in 2015 out of the designers mutual love of vintage clothing. This is one of the main inspirations in the easy to wear, feminine pieces from RIXO. Their philosophy is to evoke a sense of wanderlust and free spirit with their seasonless collection. Henrietta and Orlagh combine original hand-painted prints and timeless silhouettes to flatter every woman who wears their designs. Each outfit was complete with a one of a kind vintage handbags and accessories, reinforcing the uniqueness of each RIXO look.
It was so fun to experience the collection in a setting as upbeat as a disco club. As confetti fell from the ceiling, the models joined a drag queen directed dance off. I took one last spin around the club to take in the scene, thinking to myself what a perfect way to end my London Fashion Week experience.
