London Fashion Week: At Holly Fulton, Art Deco meets Dada

February 21, 2011 |  3:48 pm


For fall, Edinburgh native Holly Fulton, known for her embellished Art Deco- and geometric-inspired prints and jewelry, added Dada to the mix to splendid effect.


Sheath dresses, wide-leg palazzo pants and maxi-skirts were covered in lip, skyline and cloud prints, embroidered with beads and pearls, or embellished with fur. There was a touch of Art Nouveau, too, with a print of intertwining hands and flowers.

Daphne Guinness, the eccentric heiress/fashionista also took note of the Art Deco-Egyptian connection in Fulton's collection. "Talk about capturing the zeitgeist," she said.
