Video, produced by brightonart.tv: Bernard Chandran Spring/Summer 2012 catwalk presentation during London Fashion Week in September 2011. The collection received attention online such as on Style.com which mentioned the presentation in the news section or on 'Living Soho' where the time-effect of the collection (from the 1950s to the future) and its impact on the styles that range from sporty over couture to elegant-leisure is bespoken: "...the modern idea of fifties, continuing to mix past whilst continuing to look to the future."
