    Sparkling Chic at Steven Khalil Fall Winter 2019 during Haute Couture Fashion Week
    One of the most outstanding shows during Paris Fashion Week has to be Steven Khalil’s collection ‘Dame En Fleurs.’ As Khalil was inspired by the delicacy of flowers and the strength of their beauty, many pieces of this haute couture collection sparkled with numerous embroidered flowers. In an interview with Vogue Australia, Khalil explains his vision for the designs: “I wanted to examine the anatomy of flowers in their different stages of bloom — they are so delicate but also have a strength and beauty that appeals to everyone. I was interested to see how these elements could work together.”

    The result proved to be a dazzling haze of both breezy and skin-tight shimmering dresses. The breathtaking creations of the Australian bridal and red carpet fashion designer were made in various soft, romantic colors like dove grey, silver, and white, but also in dramatic black. Organza and sequins were materials that returned in various designs. The necklines changed from strapless to deep v-necks and elegant high-necks. One of the most outstanding dresses has to be the asymmetrically cut-up viridian blue tulle dress that came near the end of the show. The combination of the various tulle layers with the romantically embellished bodice created a highly dramatic effect.

    As for accessories, most models wore fabulous high-heeled strappy sandals, often in a simple nude, so one’s attention was immediately captured by the stunning dresses. The fairytale vibe of the collection could also be noticed in the details, as different romantic hairstyles consisted of soft, loose curls, and the make-up looks supported the illusion of ultra-feminine porcelain beauty. Debuted alongside Khalil’s couture was his new jewelry collection, featuring delicate and luxurious designs, representing everything we expect from the lavish world of couture jewelry. The Versailles themed setting, with its numerous glistening chandeliers added to the dreaminess of the show.

    Founded in 2005 by the publicist and designer Viviana Alba, the Colombian brand Bendita Seas designs highly original garments for creative, fun, and tasteful women. The brand is famous for its coats, dresses, skirts, boots, and its unique, feminine, and colorful details.

    Their collection for the autumn-winter 2019 shown in April during Bogota Fashion Week, was a real feast for the fashion eye.

All of the looks featured a mixture of retro and avant-garde with subtle kitsch touches while remaining very wearable.

    Rock N’ Rock Chic at Ducky Black Fall Winter 2019 during Bogotá Fashion Week
    Ducky Black is the punk rock chic brand of Colombian designer Luisa Alvarado. It caters to adult women who maintain a passion for the punk attitude, but who also like to incorporate a vision of a romantic lifestyle in their wardrobe. Handmade with innovative cuts, and using materials such as Spanish Nappa leather, Ducky Black offers sophisticated pieces with a rock-’n-roll vibe.

    Their collection for the autumn-winter of 2019, shown in April during Bogota Fashion Week, brought the brand’s serious punk vibes to the runway. The show opened with a kimono-style dress in a combined bluebird and green dragon pattern. Flowy flared trousers in bright colors like yellow and pink were combined with black and purple biker jackets, next to all-black outfits. The rock-’n roll factor was established by choice for black biking shoes, spiked chokers, and dramatic black eye-makeup, creating the illusion of the models wearing a mask.

    Bewitching Berry Tones for Next Season at Isabel Henao Fall Winter 2019 during Bogotá Fashion Week
    Latin American designer Isabel Henao has mastered the art of simple sophistication with her Fall Winter 2019 collection, which she debuted at Bogotá Fashion Week in Colombia. All eyes were on the clothing as the models walked up and down the equally sophisticated set design. The opening few designs gave a strong introduction to the rest of the collection: maroon and navy tones with delicate gold bead-work. Yet the collection also features many juxtapositions as well. While half the collection features tailored women’s trousers paired with oversized blazers, the remaining half of the collection features silk palazzo pants, flowing button-down dress shirts, and cascading gowns.

    Flowery organza is grounded by rich, black embroidery depicting winding vines and leaves. The silk trousers and blouses cast a rippling appearance while walking down the runway. With wine-red berry tones and sultry navy silk, Henao quietly contrasts her Latin American contemporaries with a muted color palette and a minimalist approach to textiles. Even the models donned deep red lipstick to match the nighttime glamor feel of the collection.

    In a world of new and different times with changing freedom, Henao mirrors the feeling of movement by attaching capes to some of her garments. Fixed to certain dresses and pants, the addition of the cape reflects the designer’s experimentation with structure and flow along with restraint and freedom. Henao has fun playing with the restraints of women’s workwear, adding touches of femininity in the fine details. The clothing’s gold and patterned beadwork is a shimmering addition to the garments, which again points back to Henao’s meticulous attention to detail. The simple color palette and minimalist designs evoke a feeling of nostalgia, which society at large has been desiring. Henao delivers.

    90’s Sophistication at Lena Hoschek Spring Summer 2020 during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin
    Australian designer Lena Hoschek evokes strong feelings of 90’s nostalgia with her Spring Summer 2020 collection, featuring dark florals, knee-high boots, and chokers. With minimal detailing and mid-century form, she introduces the 1990’s to the 1950’s by way of fusing the vintage with the classic.

    A deep, berry-toned floral pattern over a black background is cut into a classic knee-length A-line skirt, evoking both the simplicity of the ’90s and the familiarity of the ’50s. Hoschek derives inspiration for her silhouettes from Christian Dior’s famed “New Look,” with double-breasted dresses cinched in by a belt at the waist. Hoschek evokes the sense of immaculate attention to detail by the 1950’s housewife, while contrasting it in minute ways. One model in a knee-length skirt walked the runway with mismatched high heels: one black, one cream, perhaps to challenge the way we view women’s fashion of the past.

    Rather than using bright and flowery prints, Hoschek’s models don black and gold garments, illustrations of hands suggesting palm-readings and spirituality, and countless numbers fixed with black corsets in unexpected places. These details, paired with sultry, dark makeup, put a spin on the cultural understanding of feminine dress throughout the years.
