Last week, my friend showed me luxury fashion label Viktor & Rolf’s instagram page and it was no ordinary fashion social media. They have recently been posting backstage editorial pictures and videos from their Performance of Sculptures Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016 show, and oh boy are they incredible. Essentially, the clever couturiers have crafted out-of-this world sculptural pieces from the simple idea of a basic white polo shirt. Read on to see the amazing collection, as words can barely describe the crazy creativity of this project! Fashion. Is. Art.
Sadly I wasn’t one of the fortunate few Scottish Fashion Bloggers who got a taste of the FROW at this year’s LFW, getting snapped by street-style photographers and spotting the hottest designers and supermodels left right and centre, but that hasn’t stopped me pouring over the collections by Le Kilt, Sadie Williams and Sophia Webster.
After receiving the Savage Beauty book for Christmas and pouring over the jaw-dropping creations of Lee Alexander McQueen from his famous touring exhibition, I was thrilled to hear rumours of the upcoming biopic of the legendary fashion designer’s life to be directed by the talented Andrew Haigh. Read more about it on The Guardian, and scroll on to see an ode to his Most Memorable Shows and Collections, from one of my favourite blogs, Lets Talk About Beauty. As always, rest in peace Lee McQueen. There will never be anyone more inspirational to young fashion designers everywhere as you.
