Stylist Damian Foxe selects one of Spring 2014's major trends - pleats - as inspiration for this electric fashion spread in How To Spend It Magazine. Entitled 'Pleats & Plissé', Ukrainian model Alla Kostromichova wears a few beautifully folded looks from the SS14 runways, spinning new ideas for wearing this age old design.
