I was so excited to be sitting front row at The Innovators today (I was sitting next to Johnny from By Johnny and I almost died. His my idol)
I love seeing up and coming designers as they aren’t afraid to be a little bit more quirky and not follow the norm.
Leroy’s use of colour was enlightening. It was soft while still maintaining a level of ferociousness. I am so intrigued by this use of dying and I have never seen anything like it. I can really see this brand going far as people just want a little bit of colour in their life.
The translucent sheer worked well for the collection – as well as the intricate prints. Other than that I would have liked to see a bit more creativity and originality. I found it just followed the been there done that.
This mens wear collection was obviously inspired by New York city and is incredibly chic for males. These unique designs prove why the innovators is one of the best shows to go to. The students have much more lead way to be creative.
I can’t explain to you how much I LOVED THIS COLLECTION (hopefully the caps will give you the right idea). These designs are all about gothic haute couture and Ying Yuan’s Non Identity will go a long way. I wouldn’t be surprised if she had her own show next year.
Charlie Chaplain featured multiple times in print in Vinh Nguyen’s collection. It was witty and fun, but the circus/fun theme was a bit overwhelming and most of the designs didn’t tickle my fancy.
This is street style at it’s best, while towards the end gradually becoming formal and couture. It’s rare that you find such unique clothes and beautiful silhouettes. And of course, who wouldn’t love the use of sequins in a beanie.
