International designer Sofia Dourvari wows the crowds at Fashion Finest London Fashion Week Show

Posted on February 19, 2014 Under LFW Show

Showing twelve designs from the 2014 collection, Sofia Dourvari took the audience by storm at the Fashions Finest London Fashion Week Off Schedule Show at the Grand Connaught Rooms this weekend.
Using a variety of colours and fabrics, Sofia Dourvari creates unique and exciting garments for strong independent women. The pieces shown on Sunday included cocktail dresses that are perfect for attending special occasions, as well as long evening gowns with soft metallics for an elegant fairy-tale look and stronger metallics to create a bold statement, perfect for red carpet LFWevents. Finally, Sofia Dourvari showed wedding dresses that featured an element of structure, with a variety of looks to suit different tastes and personalities.
British supermodel Sophie Anderton opened and closed the Sofia Dourvari collection, seven years after last appearing at London Fashion Week. The atmosphere was electric at the opening of the show as cameras flashed and the lights came up to reveal Sophie wearing a Sofia Dourvari metallic floral cocktail dress.
In the finale, Sophie wore an elegant, strapless, white wedding dress and was accompanied by a male model wearing a beautiful suit by Savile Row tailors, Pins & Stripes, and carrying a Box of Grey wedding-themed adult toy collection in a signature leather flight case. Hair was styled by Demitri Jones, using extensions by Great Lengths, and models wore luxury accessories by jewellery brand Wearing Memories.
After enjoying great feedback about her work, Sofia Dourvari is already excited about next season’s London Fashion Week in September. She is thrilled to have been able to work with Sophie Anderton, as well as Fashions Finest and all the brands that collaborated to make the show such as success. This may only be the second time that Manchester-based Sofia has shown her designs at London Fashion Week, but it certainly will not be the last!
