2016 Pre-Fall Collection

It was her debut runway show, and shoe designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal took her piles of platforms, glitter and velvet to London’s Roundhouse for a rich — and slightly eerie — spectacle inspired by Forties science fiction film noir, vintage posters and comic books.

Models, clad in black dresses, coats and bodysuits that were made for the event but will not be sold, moved in a circle around the audience, showing off sparkly shoes, bags, eyewear and jewelry in the vast dark space. The catwalk was raised so that shoes and bags were at eye level.
