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.

Each x Other Pre-Fall 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 […]

Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2017

Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2017 was a continuation of their against-the-grain 80’s vibe…the only thing on-trend about it was the carpet bagger jackets. The silhouettes, the grotesque sloppiness of it all was off-putting – it was stiff and cheap with leather, gold lamé…sleeves and shoulders dropped more and more throughout the show. Is that a drop…

Balmain Spring/Summer 2017

Can I be honest? I want Balmain to switch it up next fall in a major way. This is like a three season transition here, and while there have been such glamorous looks, I feel like there isn’t enough of a contrast from SS16 to SS17. The post-Olivier Balmain has gone from edgy and grunge…

Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2017

Fencing has been done recently, but for Spring/Summer 2017 Dior put its own spin on it. Jackets, vests, and dresses bore signature details of the sport: quilting, straps, and studs, with a nod of a hat or visor. Gorgeous graphic dresses, knits, and skirts; on-trend below the knee skirts paired with red Moto jackets and…

Givenchy Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016

The Givenchy Couture FW16 Fall/Winter 2016 collection was a mix of the unwearable and originality met with attention to detail. Ill-fitting party streamer and fringe dresses added volume to the natural waistline and did nothing for the models. The mirror mosaic reveal beneath black beaded zipper paneled blazer was a unique twist on blazers similar…

Balmain Resort Spring/Summer 2017 SS17

High-waisted pants with Hip-high slits, bustiers, capes, flowing wide-legged jumpsuits, sheer chiffon, ruffles, bishop sleeved and sheer detailed blouses, turquoise and leopard tassel and crochet detailed belts over green and orange jumpsuits, a navy lace-up off the shoulder crop top, chokers, a leg and midriff cut-out top and skirt similar to dresses worn by JLO…

DSquared2 Resort Spring/Summer 2017 SS17

Let your freak…errr…British flag fly with flag and patch detailed bags, unusual nose and lip jewelry, lace-up knee-high peep-toe boots, fedoras and caps, classic cut outerwear and shirting, cropped denim cargo vests, and bleached destroyed denim, the DSquared2 Resort Spring/Summer 2017 womenswear collection mixed the 70’s with a bit of a punk influence. The long…

Hood By Air Spring/Summer 2017 Menswear

I’ve spoken about multi-functional details and separates, jackets you can take off and attach to your outfit, for example. The Hood By Air Spring/Summer 2017 menswear collection featured zippers strategically placed to hold a jacket, a bag…or arm slings and straight jacket sleeves, or even in the construction- original details such as the pant leg…

Junya Watanabe Spring/Summer 2017 Menswear

The Junya Watanabe SS17 menswear collection stood out mostly for its graphic prints and contrasting sleeves on leather jackets and coats- or visa versa with leather sleeves on blazers. Something about the eye graphic print and halftone print face t-shirts look dark, the first of which reminds me of Dali for some reason, the later…
