London Fashion week has come to an end. What really is astounding is the ingenuity of humans and their ability to create beauty with their vivid and intricate imagination. Innovation using fabrics, textures, colour schemes, patterns , layering and cuts was in abundance. I think we really forget or underestimate human's ability to visualise, project and create. Art is truly a manifestation of the human spirit, the mind's eye, thoughts and our potential. Our originality is beyond belief and we are very lucky to be surrounded by these manifestation in all their forms on a daily basis. The great thing about fashion is it also performs a function. We need to be clothed and clothed accordingly based on the environment.
I was privileged with the opportunity of viewing the Busardi presentation last week, Forward PR did a great job promoting the collection.
Busardi's designs are based on the old fashioned couture practices of Parisian fashion houses. If you look closely at the embroidery and splendid floral lace work - you will be mesmerised by the craftsmanship and tailoring, though Busardi is actually based in Bangkok not Paris.
The collection was elegant, regal and refined. There were so many clinched waistlines with bold, sheer panels and just as many 'separates' to evening gowns, the ratio was equitable. The lace appliques were embossed with rose shapes which derive from an ultra feminine and luxurious look. The fabric palette consisted of lace, organza, tulle, silks from Japan and Thailand and duchess satin. The colour range was made up of pinks, sultry purples, electric blue and deep aqua. All the colours were rich and the make -up on the models conjured up images of the dark side of luxe. Uplifting and transcendent in many regards but with equal measures of deep romance and mysterious, velvety, rich, intense seduction.
