Corrie Nielsen was the designer to watch today at London Fashion Week. We all held our breath as the last year's Fashion Fringe Winner started her first show on the BFC catwalk. What we saw certainly did not disappoint. The entire show was like watching an Elizabethan drama play out on a...

I'll be honest, when I watched the Fashion Fringe entries on the catwalk last year, Corrie Nielsen wasn't my favourite. Her Marie Antoinette-esque designs were too costumey for me, too complicated, too unwearable. I'm a sucker for pieces I can see myself in, so it wasn't for me. With John...

I'm starting my first fashion week post with the first show I attended on Friday (I guess that's the right way to do things), Corrie Nielsen. Corrie maintained her couture style - although she threw in a few more 'wearable' pieces, probably to boost sales now that she has made her name - and...

Being a Fashion Fringe winner I knew that Corrie Nielsen's autumn/winter collection was going to be special, but it was more than that, it was a showstopper. Entitled, ‘A Winter's Melodie', it was full of dramatic silhouettes, historical romance and a dark colour palette. Taking inspiration...

London Fashion Week designer Corrie Nielsen is teaming up with Scoop on her very own ice cream flavour. Yes, you read it right one of my favourite designers will be immortalised into an extra dark chocolate flavour with a hint of orange blossom from Paris – well a couture designer needs...

Corrie Nielsen, an Alex Loves favourite, is getting her own ice cream flavour for London Fashion Week at luxury gelateria Scoop. To coincide with London Fashion Week and the opening of Scoop's new South Kensington shop, they invited Fashion Fringe winner Corrie Nielsen to create her ultimate...

I went to Corrie Nielsen's collection and it was brilliant, any other show will find it hard to top it. The American designer moved to London in 2000 ,but her collection was inspired by Scotland and it takes inspiration from Vivienne Westwood. Though it wouldn't be fair to say her clothes...

Corrie Nielsen in her finest, darkest Victorian mood with a present day Japanese twist, sent rich tones interspersed with crisp whites down the runway in the form of architectural shapes, puffed silk neck attire and tailored waistcoats. Described as and fulfilling the role of a modern...

Corrie Nielsen is a perfect example of why competitions like Fashion Fringe are absolutely wonderful for young talent: although I believe without a doubt she would have made it without winning the competition, it launched her label and gave her the time to create her personal style without...

Last week I got a chance to investigate Corrie Nielsen's collection even further at the Forward PR press day. The looks I loved on the runway were even more impressive close-up where I could examine every element of sharp tailoring and what must have been hundreds of hours of pleating,...
