Jeff Garner's Prophetik AW12 collection at London Fashion Week

Sustainable fashion designer Jeff Garner decided not to showcase his collection last season at London Fashion Week's SS12 , but happily we see a return for him with his AW12 collection.
Inspired by Princess Grace who was courted by the noble dandy gentleman the collection was titled ‘Courtly Love’
 
And the first long dresses were oh so Princess Grace – sleek yet sophisticated, simple yet glamorous, worn with  regal necklaces from Adorn especially designed for Prophetik. 
Here the snow white gown has a delicate ethereal lace overlay .


Black and white  showed a more dramatic elegance in both  long and short lengths..





Garner's love of the Victorian Deep South look  was there looking delicate and refined in soft shades of pink and white  .....

...  and robust and hardy with the more  farmland styles.
Hemp wool plaid was new to his collection to give an equestrian countryside style in jackets matched with slim jodhpur style capris. 
A dark red jacket with full swing skirt cinched in the waist mixed the equestrian look with Garner’s love of the old Deep South style.
Moving away from the Victorian high necklines, short day time dresses looked cute and innocent at the front with their spaghetti straps and full skirts, but the straps wrapped around the arms to leave the back totally bare.



Not all were backless, others had cross over straps.

Colours were made from plant and earth-based dyes.
The Finale dress was a white strapless bodice made from his grandmothers aged quilts and adorned with a vintage pocket watch, skirt in black peace silk and a trail of black naturally shed ostrich feathers. This dress will be on exhibition at the Smithsonian museum Washington DC from July as part of the 40 under 40 exhibit in the Renwick Gallery
