Tata Naka Spring Summer 2019 at London Fashion Week
Tata Naka’s regal SS19 collection drew inspiration from Roman and Greek mythology. The presentation was set in the grand and luxurious Dartmouth House that had an undeniable opulence and interiors to marvel at. It couldn’t have been more perfect of a setting to present a collection inspired by Roman Emperors. It was also fascinating watching the design duo, photographers and models at work in such an ornate setting. Live classical music also set the tone and complemented the ethereal elegance of the collection. Besides statuesque optic white and ivory pieces, the color palette was bright and summery with lemon yellows, sky blues, pretty pastels, burnt oranges, reds and browns. The collection also included a wide array of gold shimmery metallic fabrics fit for royalty.
The design duo are known for their bespoke show stopping prints and this collection definitely didn’t disappoint. The painterly prints included hand drawn statues in “carpe diem” bright and hand painted carnelian jewelry engraved with royal portraits. Classic nautical stripes and leopard prints were also displayed adding a fun artsy twist. Fabrics also had a marbleized watercolor dyed look to them adding to the artisanal look. Ancient mythological symbols and motifs were also a source of inspiration for gilded appliqués and embroidered emblems which gave the collection a premium luxe feel. Jewels also adorned ensembles and jacquards sported classical statue motifs. Draped togas, tunics and long flowing silhouettes resembled graceful ancient statues and were toga party-chic. Pleated dresses and skirts also featured throughout the collection. Angular structured necklines and oversized sleeves modernized traditional dress shapes. Criss-cross detailing seen along the waist of certain dresses also added a contemporary edge. Some pieces were vibrant and summer ready with color blocking adding a sense of fun. Sorbet pastel striped shirt dresses particularly stole the show and swimsuits sported vivid colors and painterly hand drawn Roman busts.
The statuesque models who stood on marble plinths on rotation had an ethereal glow with shimmery dewy makeup and metallic lipstick. The hairstyling also took direct inspiration from Greek and Roman statues with sculptural tight curls framing the face and sleek buns. On occasion, models worn jewelry from the brand’s collaboration with jewelry brand Angela Puttini that were adorned with luxurious pearls, stones and motifs that matched the prints from the collection.
Overall Tata Naka’s SS19 collection would put anyone in the holiday mood and is best described in three words: ornate, summery and ethereal. One thing is certain: The Tata Naka design duo can definitely say “Veni Vidi Vici”.

Cute Couture at Giovanni Bedin Spring Summer 2020 during Haute Couture Fashion Week
Since founding his label in 2017, Giovanni Bedin has officially completed his first fashion show, presenting his Runway Spring/Summer 2020 collection of Ready-to-Wear haute couture in Paris, France. The feminine collection was full of delicate details and lightness in motion.
The Italian designer focused on shapes and cutouts, drawing attention to the female figure and uncovering precision. He used his favorite accessory of whalebones for corsets and miniskirts, sculpting the body and creating subtle dimensions. Bedin limited his color palette to neutrals of black, white, light pink, and blue, rather than using vibrant colors that may distract attention away from the details.
The catwalk took place at Hotel de Crillon, a Rosewood Hotel, which was an ideal location for an afternoon show in 30-degree heat! The models made an entrance through large open doors, weaving their way around a light and airy room with wooden floors, passing mirrors and reflections showing the elaborate and grand gold ornamentation of the building. Walking with a potent stride and always on the move, the models represented the innocence yet fierceness of women, with natural, ‘barely there’ makeup and slicked-back hair.
A lot of skin was on show; sleeveless and transparent dresses – almost representative of lingerie – revealed the midriff and silhouette underneath. The lace-up boots and floral prints emphasized the cute, pretty, and girly aspects of the collection. It was lovely to see influencers in the front row wearing similar styles, with fashion model, Marianne Fonseca, even wearing one of Giovanni Bedin’s dainty, baby blue designs!

Creative Knitwear at MLRR and Papel de Punto Fall Winter 2019 during Bogotá Fashion Week
MLRR – also known as Mulierr – and Papel de Punto were two more clothing brands who had the chance to show off their new designs at Bogotá Fashion Week 2019. Latin American brand, MLRR, uses organic cotton for every garment, supporting sustainable practices while also helping the environment and taking responsibility for our planet. The designs for their handmade embroidery and knits are inspired by the natural geometry and textures of everyday life.
Papel de Punto is the perfect balance between art and fashion, offering neat but fun knitwear made in Colombia. Laura Acevedo, the fashion and textile designer, works alongside her partner, Felipe Guerra, the brand architect and editor of style, creating collections with a global vision of both fashion and gender.
Both of these brands presented aesthetic collections at Bogotá Fashion Week 2019, full of creative knitting. The Mullierr team believes, ‘a day without knitting is like a day without sunshine…creativity is experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking the rules, making mistakes, and having fun’. It is all about the enjoyment of details in these collections, bringing unique and diverse style to the runway.
Papel de Punto brought us some sunshine with their Fall/Winter collection, with pops of yellow, baby blue, and orange combined with distinctive dolphin and cheetah designs. In contrast to MLRR with no bold graphics, Papel de Punto had a mix of rainbows, smiley faces, and grid formations. The designer has admitted how the weather of Bogotá affects her work. In this collection, waves of water and palm tree designs represent the tropical country of Colombia. In contrast, they are printed onto cozy fabrics, which are needed in the colder city of Bogotá.

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.

Rock N’ Rock Chic at Ducky Black Fall Winter 2019 during Bogotá Fashion Week

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.
