Splashes of orange, blue, yellow and pink were just some of the colours that spattered through-out Fred Butler's SS12 collection. Presented in the Portico room of Somerset house, four models strutted from backstage ten minutes apart to their spot -literally four considerably large coloured spots in each corner of the room, with an even larger one in the centre- for spectators to photograph. The music: A Patrick Wolfe sound installation. The drinks: A variety of Soda Stream mixed (Butler's sponsor) cocktails. Accessories had been assembled on the models which resembled magical sea creatures in magnificently bright colours. A magnificent collection perfect for SS12 was seen in Butler's first ever salon show and the compliments she received were truly deserved.
