She’s a real power player with those sharp shapes and intelligent constructions.  Emerging design talent Hannah Marshall’s seductively dark colour scheme formed the foundations for her recent global acclaim – everyone from Sarah Mower to American Elle championed her for reinventing the little black dress last season.  The British fashion maverick has whipped up voluminous structures and body conscious fits inspired by the works of architect Santiago Calatrava.  Studying his use of balance, repetition and line stirred dresses that envelope the figure and cut a viciously fierce outline.  Others float loosely with movement and all of her amplified shapes provide amazing impact.
Solid clothes that really make a mark, Hannah Marshall’s women are strong, confident and extremely stylish.  Safe investments – give it ten years and these will be prime archive picks.
