Vivienne Westwood Fall 2019: Fashion Protest

Vivienne Westwood’s Fall 2019 runway show was all about graphic protest through fashion, although Vogue’s Luke Leitch’s review was more a protest of the protest than a review…he discussed literally nothing shown but rather complained about being sold clothes while being “preached” to about sustainability. Sustainability and pollution in the fashion industry is not about…

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2019

Mary Katrantzou Fall 2019: she’s become one one of those designers whose prints and graphics stand out, and while I didn’t understand the “London look” when it comes to voluminous silhouettes and outlandish proportions in one of her collections years ago as well as this one’s few looks, I feel as if this is a…

Simone Rocha Fall 2019

Simone Rocha Fall 2019 proved the house has designers that know what they’re doing- who can manipulate satin to that extent and not have it look overworked? Triple layered sheer coats with secondary contrasting color and lapels beneath, sheer overdresses, a stunning sheer black and red fabric skirt, and use of weaved contrast and self…

Labyrinth: 3D Fashion Show Spring/Summer 2019 SS18

3D fashion show inspired by the 50’s, unrequited love and yellow flowers (tabebuia), love and heartbreak. Butterflies and Moths translated into literal and abstract prints, with some pattern pieces and garments mirroring the shapes of the wings, as well as appliques. I chose to embody the different styles that came out of the fifties, the sock hoppers, greasers, beatniks and the glamour evoked by old Hollywood.I chose to embody the different styles that came out of the fifties, the sock hoppers, greasers, beatniks and the glamour evoked by old Hollywood.

Antonio Berardi SS18 Spring/Summer 2018 SS18

Antonio Berardi SS18 Spring/Summer 2018 was a sophisticated collection- layered hemlines, bias cut draped assemetrical tops and dresses, unique blazers, cut-outs, silhouette and proportion play, and contrasting sheer and opaque fabrics made for an elevated and well executed fashion show.

KTZ Spring/Summer 2018

Chainmale- some made of soda can tabs, army green cargo pants and parkas- the later with graphic leather letter and arrow applique (omg, the matching socks: 🖤), knits gorgeously destroyed in a “trying too hard” kind of way, patches, the ever popular quilting, black boots with white paint platter…the KTZ Spring/Summer 2018 London Men’s Fashion…

Fly a Kite Craig Green! Spring/Summer 2018

 😂👏🏻 I’m having a Margiela Spongebob SQUAREPANTS flashback thanks to Craig Green’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Frumpy rags and futuristic scarecrow clothesline alternatives remind us that while fashion can be art, fashion isnt modern art(s and crafts). Listen, put this in an art display and call it “Hanger Kites”…dont send it down the runway my little…

MAN Spring/Summer 2018

A unique lapeled jacket paired with wide legged blue pants, mesh tank tops and sheer shirts, open weave sleeveless shirts, pockets on the outside, and voluminous draped pants strut the runway of the MAN Spring/Summer 2018 show, which was a success except for the Gumby jumpsuit. Sadly, that same amount of originality and flare was…

Matthew Miller Spring/Summer 2018 

A dark and mysterious air and beauty preceeded the fashion at Matthew Miller Spring/Summer 2018 Menswear runway show. The hair and makeup featured black smudged lips, dark stringy greasy wet hair, and pale matte faces.   Strap and pocket details characterized unique tanks, cropped vests, and jackets. Dangling belt bags, huge pockets, even outerwear attached…

Bottega Veneta Fall/Winter 2017

Seventies influences met with a western flair- layered contrasting colors and textures with knits, graphic tees, creepy faces photo prints, ascots, double breasted jackets, ski masks…there was a lot going on in the Vivienne Westwood Fall/Winter 2017 collection. The runway makeup featured both understated nude faces, lips, and eyes; and insane runway beauty looks with […]
