In an old sorting office near Holborn the queue outside Basso and Brooke was frantic. Jodie Harsh shimmied in while the rest of us waited in the cold. Once inside, clutching goodie bags, the show began. Gaudi’s art was printed onto circle skirts and cocoon dresses. Mad shimmering waves and huge egg shaped head pieces matched exactly with the dress prints. The insides of a giant cassette tape had been molded into a jacket. Plaid was acid in colour, with fur squares dyed to match. A somewhat bonkers collection showed off Basso and Brooke’s theatrical costumier skills. More couture than ready to wear, it was a welcome break.
