LeBon Mother and Daughter swept the runway looking stylish and graceful, with Yasmin and Amber walking for Gyunel, kicking off LFW in London’s stunning art deco Bloomsbury Ballroom.
On the FROW, Donna Air, Mary Charteris and Laura Whitmore watched as Azerbaijani Gyunel Rustmaova exhibited her latest collection, including striking sweeping maxi dresses and edgier more structured pieces emblazoned with her zodiac sign of the scorpion, the theme of Gyunel’s show having a nomadic twist to it. Hair, by Wella was kept unkempt and make up simple and unfussy. Also walking for Gyunel was Vietnam’s Next Top Model 2011 Winner, Hoang Thuy, who was due to walk for Bernard during LFW’s busy Saturday Schedule.
Gyunel, a former artist, says she designed the collection with a strong adventurous woman in mind and the collection proved to be both wearable, durable but extremely beautiful.
