For someone who is the person that effortlessly blends how the east really meets the west with the true imagination of what fashion can be, there was a noticeable absence and pivot in design from the east other than her trademark silk details that she stayed true to in her recent collection “Legends”.
She flourishes her love for Romance found in 90’s medieval films with floor length translucent sleeves and contrasts her thoughts of a woman’s body in an unorthodox caged ball gown that show some leg. It was only with the accompanying makeup that made me reflect about the art of fashion – about it’s lack of wearability and obligation to opulence. This very element was something that I have greatly missed what with the increasingly breakneck speed that fast fashion has been hurrying with, leaving couture in it’s wake. Couture has never been one to follow the masses let alone trends. They reject the ready-to-wear to take heavyweight details and Romanticism for tea.
