Tim Burton’s long-awaited Alice in Wonderland finally hit our cinemas this week, leaving film fanatics in a frenzy. The modern adaptation tells the story of Alice’s return to the magical world in a quest to end the Red Queen’s reign of terror. However fashion houses and high street stores also seem to have gone a bit crazy for fantasy inspired collections, jewellery and make up.
To celebrate the films release let’s get out the dressing up box and host our very own Alice tea party…
Versus A/W 2010
Versus was born out of a fusion between Christopher Kane and Versace, highlighting the key techniques from both labels. Black, red and blue were the key colours (your perfect Alice colour palette) for the Versus fall 2010 collection this year which saw futuristic detailing mixed with fabrics such as satin, chiffon and velvet, emphasising femininity with a twist.
Get dressed up and pampered with ASOS’ key tips on shopping for Alice’s look, or read an interview with Colleen Atwood who designed the film’s costumes.
