Forget diamonds been a girls best friend, backstage at the Craig Lawrence SS12 show, the glittering of his crystal creations were enough to make any girl green with envy. I found myself drooling over the handmade beauties like a hungry dog waiting for pedigree chum. The urge to try on these masterpieces was unbearable.
Originally from Ipswich, the London-based designer was sponsored by Swarovski for his SS12 collection, therefore each garment had crystal flecks, grains and stones cleverly attached and entwined through the magical knitwear.
Lawrence's salon show held in the Portico rooms at Somerset house dazzled the audience including photographers from Vogue.co.uk, Suzie Menkes (editor of the international Herald Tribune) and Anna Trevelyan (stylist).
