Hannah Marshall is a British-born fashion designer, who has established a reputation through showing at London Fashion Week and being part of the Fashion East programme for emerging talent in the industry. She trained at Colchester, and graduated in 2003. She established her own label in 2007.
Whilst she has been credited with 'reinventing the little black dress', Marshall has drawn criticism from established journalists for being too pretentious in her designs and presentation, with Tim Blanks, a writer for Condé Nast, suggesting that her Spring 2011 show was "highfalutin in the extreme". Her focus has been on creating constructed yet feminine pieces.
Hannah Marshall’s work has been photographed by Nick Knight, RANKIN, and Hedi Slimane, and has been worn by Erin O’Connor, Alice Dellal, Florence Welch, Naomi Campbell, Kelly Osbourne, SKIN, Janet Jackson, Marina Diamandis, Rihanna, amongst others.

Although I was sure velvet had had its day after the last few seasons, Alexander Wang's show in NY and now Hannah Marshall's are making me re-consider. Hailed as the Queen of Black, and rightly so, Hannah continued her body-con aesthetic, presenting a collection full of the tightest all-in-one playsuits and mini dresses. High necks and cut-out detailing were layered with sheer purple and blue under-garments, structured in a top-heavy silhouette. I found the beauty to be a really strong aspect of the show (something I seem to be consistently inspired by this LFW): hair bands covered the front part of the models' head - a modern potential update to the Prada turban. The lack of colour in the clothes was made-up by the shocking-blue glitter lips, also seen earlier in the day at Charlie le Mindu. The closing dress - a 3-D ring-binding encircling the body - showed a more avant-garde take on the black mini dress, which I hope to see more of next season.
