Serbian-born fashion designer Roksanda Illincic presented her Autumn / Winter 2018 collection for this season’s London Fashion Week yesterday at Belgravia’s Eccleston Yards.
Roksanda’s latest ready-to-wear collection appeared at Eccleston Yards in partnership with Tart London; a bespoke catering company specialising in providing food for fashion shoots, who are soon to open their first restaurant, baptised ‘Eccleston Place’, within the development. The show took place in the venue that will become the brand’s flagship bricks and mortar site.
The venue was a fitting choice for the showcase, as alongside writing a weekly food column in London’s Evening Standard magazine, Tart founders Lucy Carr-Ellison and Jemima Jones have catered for some of the most influential names in the fashion industry, including Gisele Bundchen, Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne. They also count designers Saint Laurent, Mulberry and Stella McCartney as loyal clients.
The new restaurant will embody Tart’s ethos of using fresh, seasonal ingredients and sustainably sourced produce from local farms; offering both healthy and more decadent options. The site will also feature a photography studio, 350 capacity event space and a retail space.
