TFJ shines the spotlight on a few of the designers from day 4 of MBFWA.
This collection felt fresh, a little like a blank canvas waiting to be worn and made one’s own. The lines were clean and simple, the colour palette was fairly neutral, favouring a blue pastel as well as the crispness of white and cream. Blouses were a little boxy and oversized and leather and sheer textures were featured. All-in-all a collection that I believe embraced the breath of fresh air that is spring after a gloomy winter.
This collection excited me, simply because it allowed me to use the word billowing. Because that’s what many of the brightly coloured frocks in Kapp’s collection did, billow! Bright colours littered the runway, from cocktail dress to evening gown and a jumpsuit in between, colour adorned them all. The one shoulder look was revamped with delicate gathering and the low neckline was also employed. Imagine smarties scattered on a blank page. Brilliance.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love sequins? When I saw the AJE collection my heart leaped with joy at the sequin wonders that were apart of it. Embellishments were in overload but the colour palette was simple. Gold metallics, black, dashes of tan and a whole heap of cream and white. The collection featured cut outs and made the midriff fashionable [because there's always debate over the midriff]. An ample amount of sparkly frocks filled the runway with the occasional trouser popping in. Take note of the peplum-skirt look adorning a frock or two.
