London - Edward Meadham, one-half of British design duo Meadham Kirchhoff, returned to London Fashion Week to style and create clothing for Sophia Webster’s footwear presentation, six months after confirming the closure of his own label.

Footwear designer Webster worked with Meadham to create exclusive ethereal tulle and satin fashion, including a wedding gown, to be worn by her models as she unveiled her ‘I Myself, Am Strange and Unusual’ shoe collection.

The clothing pieces were very much in Meadham’s signature dramatic dark romantic style and were accompanied by an installation of dried flowers and butterflies by artist Rebecca L. Law and headpieces by milliner Jo Miller, which looked impressive in the chapel of Soho's House of St Barnabas setting.

Webster’s collection, which explores a darker side featured decadent textures and embellishments in a rich palette, inspired by the show’s muse Lydia Deetz, the heroine of Beetlejuice, played by Winona Ryde. Highlights included embossed leather boots with crystal and stone-encrusted heels, petrol finished holographic butterflies, as well as delicately beaded speech bubble bags.

When Meadham was part of Meadham Kirchhoff he did numerous collaborations including with Topshop, Amazon and Penhalions, however, this marks his first solo venture following the label’s dissolution last September.

"Meadham Kirchhoff wasn't killed by the fashion industry, I think that it was killed largely by itself," Edward Meadham said when the label closed in an interview with i-d magazine. "We were in a quagmire of debt and it was just becoming impossible to keep up with anything.”
