Fudge at Lingerie London 2012
Peaches Geldof and Abby Clancy were amongst the famous faces to be found on the catwalk, with Dawn Porter and Patrick Kielty on hand as presenters. Both Agent Provocateur and Atsuko Kudo made sure the girls were suited and booted, and Snowden Hill headed up the Fudge session team backstage.
A mixture of models, dancers, celebrities and hostesses graced the stylist’s chairs, making up a total of more than 100 women.
Lingerie London was presented by the Seven Bar Foundation, a charitable foundation which works to empower women across the world, helping them to start or grow their own businesses and break the cycle of poverty.
Atsuko Kudo, who notably has worked with Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Rihanna, was the first to present. The girls were given a second skin with their latex corsets, stockings and suspenders, and demure dresses had a sexy twist with a transparent finish. Snowden and the team created ‘50s beehives inspired by the film ‘In the Mood for Love’. “The collection is incredible – the designs are so feminine and sophisticated, and the hair needed to compliment that”, Snowden explained. “We decided on an expensive-looking beehive to give the girls the perfect silhouette”.

It was down to world-famous luxury lingerie brand Agent Provocateur to close the show with a spectacular three-part show that included models, dancers, aerialists and marines. The first section, Military, saw 13 dancers and three aerialists open the show, with Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding walking the runway. The hair was set in tight, glossy, low chignons with a side parting.

Next came the Goth section, opened by Peaches Geldof in a floor length purple and white lace gown. The models sported two hair looks inspired by Miss Havisham, with hair textured and loose but piled high, and some were topped off with delicate lace masks. Snowden said: “This look is the most dramatic – it’s sexy, textured hair that makes a statement”.

The final part was entitled Glam Rock. The designs featured metallic details and fringing, and a lot of glitter.

Model and tabloid favourite Abbey Clancy opened the show, whilst husband and England footballer Peter Crouch looked on proudly.
