Show reports for Michael Van Der Ham AW11/12

The top 3 show reports for Michael Van Der Ham's Autumn Winter 2011/2012 show from London Fashion Week:

'Today he upped his game and managed to move his trademark montage designs on, developing them into a more accessible variation which still rung true to his aesthetic – with each piece seemingly collaged together from about five – but this time keeping the overall look simple' Said Jessica Bumpus of

'With his first solo show last season, Michael van der Ham made himself a name on every editor's ones-to-watch list. His way of crafting Franken-chic pastiches of specially sourced fabrics and sartorial references was unexpectedly beautiful and affecting. Those showing up today to see more of the same were in for something of a surprise, as van der Ham opened with a series of jewel-hued, crushed-velvet looks—all in one color and one fabric'. said Meenal Mistry at 

Michael van der Ham is London’s prince of patchwork, master of taking a jumble of fabrics and whipping them up into breathtaking dresses. But maybe he's worried about being pigenholed, because for autumn he’s decided to take a slightly different tack and focused on silhouette rather than contrasting patterns' Said Emma Sells of

Michael Van der Ham PRE SHOW!!

Researching into Michael Van der Ham over the last couple of weeks I wanted to see if there was any media hype or any fashion media that wanted to create excitement for the forthcoming new collection! guess what??? NOTHING apart from some other blogger slating one of his tops due to the style and whether it was worth the price it was retailing at and that he was one of the NewGen designers confirmed to show in LFW in February 2011.

Lets see what London Fashion Week Day 4 coverage shows now the show has actually happened.......

So I have chosen Mr Van der ham as my 'bright star' for the future of Fashion, having looked into the last show reports for his Spring/Summer 2011 collection from London Fashion Week in September 2010, I have found it really hard to found anymore information on him since then!! it is like he has fallen off the radar!!

Researching to his chosen idea of the 'Micheal Van der Ham woman' of someone that is not afraid to be bold and likes to be different, but who is she???

Thinking of someone that is bold and likes to different can be anyone from Jessie J, Paloma Faith to Katy Perry and Rihanna, there is so many different ways to be bold. Not one celebrity has been pictured in his dresses! so who would you choose??

Show reports for Michael Van Der Ham SS11

The top 3 show reports for Michael Van der Ham:

Elle Catwalk | Michael Van Der Ham |
"It was one of the most beautiful shows of the week so far and and proved that van der Ham is more than worthy of a spot on the London Fashion Week schedule," Said Emma Sells.,9377
"Michael's unique patchworks of devore and lame took his signature jigsawing to a new, more sophisticated level," said Vogue market editor Emma Elwick-Bate.
"There is something of a postmodern conceit in what van der Ham is doing. He's making fashion about fashion, in the same way a brilliant new artist like Marlo Pascual is making art about art. But in both cases, the peculiar beauty of the result speaks for itself," said Tim Blanks.
