Despite being known for her fierce, no-nonsense design aesthetic, British designer Hannah Marshall couldn't have been sweeter or more accommodating when we met her at the Centre For Fashion Enterprise pop-up showroom. This Fall, Marshall confidently stood behind the return of the strong shoulder and created a collection based on the concept of body armor--that which both protects and gives strength to the wearer. Some pieces could take the expression 'second skin' and, although the collection is shown in black, many looks will also retail in steel grey or midnight ink as well. Check out Marshall's Fall 2009 look book images along with a few of our snapshots from the showroom below.
