Gemma Arterton and Kelly Osbourne were among the stars at Mulberry's New York Fashion Week show yesterday (14.09.10), which had a Secret Garden theme and was held at the exclusive Soho House.
To celebrate the new spring/summer 2011 collection guests were treated to Mulberry bellinis and Guinness cupcakes before a live acoustic set by Florence and the Machine.
Trends in the show included belted dresses and colours such as rich purple, pastel Pink and camel.
Creative Director Emma Hill said: "The collection is getting bigger. We have posher fabrics and we wanted to grow older. We've brought in the three-quarter length and it looks richer."
The show was inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett's 'The Secret Garden' and the 1975 documentary film 'Grey Gardens' about the reclusive Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Little Edie.
Other designers to show yesterday included Marc by Marc Jacobs, with a collection mainly influenced by embroidered sheer blouses, wide bold stripes and a series of midi length, high waisted skirts.
Rodarte applied wood-panelled prints and leaf-like detailing to cut-out dresses while Narcisco Rodriguez mixed simple, feminine tailoring with boudoir chic.
