LFW: Mary Benson SS 16

On my last day in London I was fortunate enough to attend the Mary Benson SS 16 presentation Benson is an up and coming British women's contemporary designer who's pieces have been worn on celebrities such as Rita Ora and Ellie Goulding and also had the privilege to work for Alexander McQueen. Though she has had much success, the young designer is extremely humble. Benson practically hid amongst the tight crowd during the presentation that it was difficult to snap a good photo of her. 

 The collection called  "Letters from The Darkest Corners of my Heart" featured dramatic silhouettes and eclectic styled makeup that is reminiscent of the late renowned designer. There was a couture essence of her pieces, which some were designed with hand written love notes which were also tossed on the floor.  The models were accessorized  jeweled embellished sunglasses and artistic headdresses.  Overall, the collection was extremely creative and unique.
