Before this post begins and I talk about the amazing designers and their fabulous collections at Fashion Forward Season 10 Day 2 can we please ignore the fact that my use of the pen tool on photoshop has drastically declined over the past 4 days that I have been editing all of these photos to launch this website for all of you. Don’t judge me, I am not lazy just tired *sobs*.
Hailing from Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, Anna Karenina, launched her womenswear label Anna K, at only 16. Her AW 2015 collection, presented in London, was a girly showcase of bright knits, exaggerated collars, large ribbons and — for the final look — a tin foil dress with a gigantic bow on the front, modelled by Karenina herself.
Showcasing her SS18 Collection at Fashion Forward having one of the funnest collections, filled with ruffles, frills, color with slide-on sneakers. Hair neatly pulled back into sleek ponytails, Anna’s collection was one I enjoyed as it wasn’t too overly done and styled but the mix of fabrics, textures, and structures of the pieces made it just enough to still pack a punch.
Fashion Forward invited award-winning Canadian designer Sid Neigum to showcase his Spring 2018 collection at Fashion Forward‘s 10th Season.
Opening looks featured navy, blush, and gray viscose separates in loose, flowing fabric. The focus here was on line and proportion with a few surprises in the form of knots and hardware accents: a small chain featured on the hip of a minimalist skirt and a metal ring cinching trousers and the fabric on a black sweater. For women who have shied away from body piercings, on clothes, Neigum shifts the look from grunge to elevated, avant-garde.
Sauce x Shoestova
It’s in the midst of Fashion Forward Dubai that “Social Butterfly”, BY Sauce’s first collaboration collection, was revealed in a #seenowbuynow street runway presentation. The collection is a collaboration between By Sauce and stylist and fashion creative Natalia Shustova and was presented to the region just before the launch of a pop-up shop at d3 where show-goers could “shop the show”.
