The Tollacolle debut collection launched at the Waterhouse & Dodd Gallery in Soho.  The young designer is a big fan of color and it was certainly evident in her line up of bold colorful evening dresses. Canary yellow, electric blue, emerald green and shocking pink became the backdrop for dresses that were simple, feminine and dripping with feathers.



Feathers being an important element she collaborated with jewelry design duo,SheLuxe Couture to accessorize the collection. Interestingly enough this was a partnership that was born of the internet age and the designers had never met before this point in time.

Amidst the installations and textural monotone artwork the dresses really came to life in the space. The models had loosely curled hair that didn't look completely finished or done up for decidedly modern and not trying too hard.

One notable trend seen was the use of short linings in sheer dresses for a multi layered look.
