I Don’t Need a Mango to Tango – Sophia Webster Reaffirms with A/W 2018 Collection!


Sophia Webster released a new Autumn/Winter Collection at London Fashion Week 2018 called ‘I Don’t Need A Mango To Tango” and it is not for the faint hearted. Literally!

Having drawn her inspiration from the competitive, elegant and ever-moving world of ballroom and Latin dance influenced by one of her favourite movies ‘Strictly Ballroom’, she explored the extravagant style of sparkle, feathers and like she always does, colours!

In order to bring her typical ball room vision to life, she explored London to find the perfect location to aid her vision in coming to life. Like in a ballroom and dance competition scene, her dazzling designs were displayed in trophy cabinet and on trophy plinths while some of the models posed on winner podiums.

Her level of paying attention to detail was shown when she decided to recreate a scene from the movie she was inspired by ‘Strictly Ballroom’. In it, the hero and heroine danced on a terrace under a Coca-Cola billboard and this ignited the re-collaboration between her and Coca-cola (They had their first collab in 2015). This time, she went all out by creating an all rounded encrusted Coca-Cola clutch and two other eye-catching and soul gripping shoes for the brand in the trademark color (of course). I could totally rock those!

The garments like everything else, translated the captivating feature of a ballroom scene and aided the glory of her ever captivating designs. According to her, the collection is very dear to her heart as she grew up in competitive dancing where costumes had to be made in creative and competitive ways to capture the attention of the judges. Her childhood has definitely rewarded her as I would say this is her most extravagant and the best one yet! View some of the photos from the collection below!
