29. MBFWA SS 2012: Miss Unkon

Miss Unkon is making wishes today. Onwards and upwards with her eye on the sky. You wouldn't know it by watching the show, unless of course you were able to look very very closely but behind each pretty filly's ear a small dandelion is painted and as anyone who's ever been seven can remember these are flowers of the wishing kind.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams said David Henry Thoreau. Life the life you've imagined. Certainly the designer Courtney Meyer is emblematic of that. The designer who's graciously playing host to journalists prior to her show is as much a dreamer as she is a doer but the jeunne fille of yesteryear has now grown up

Those musty dusty tones are all but done. The Navajo girl is still there, seen in delicate embroidery over frothy tulle skirting. In candy cane colours of peach, pink and blue there's an element of sex, it's only subtle. But as dresses give way to unabashedly short sheer shorties it would seem Miss Unkon is no longer frolicking in the fields
