Catwalk review: Co-operative Designs

"Spadgermatazz" is definitely not a word likely to pop up in the Oxford Dictionary any time soon. But if anyone was going to provide a definition, it was Co-operative Designs and their imaginatively titled collection, and in our minds it went something like this:


1. An eclectic celebration of head-to-toe knitwear, combining graphic and textural elements on a base palette of black and white with slashes of colour.

2. A playful mix of traditional cables and fine knits, combined with more unusual elements of embroidery, felt and leather, worked to simulate knitted stitches.

3. The creation of an illusion: dresses that look like skirts and jumpers; cardigans with built in skirts; and scarves worn as dresses.

Spadgermatazz , it’s certainly got razzmatazz.

  1. What a style of this woman I love her hair because she looks like a Lyon, I would like to take her to my house.

  2. What a strange fashion because that woman seems like a lightning felt down over her head, because look at her hair it got more erected than I Buy Generic Viagra.

  3. Nice I like your fashion attire but I'm looking for Wedding Suit.
