Entry 025: New Fashion Inspiration

New York Fashion Week:

Naeem Khan:

Khan's collection presented "highly ornamented but still, furiously strong and confident women" in highly decorative, embroidered and sequinned garments. Reference: Brooke Bobb, Feb 13th 2018, New York, Vogue. https://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/fall-2018-ready-to-wear/naeem-khan. 

I felt that there were some strong links to cultural adornment practices such as Mexican embroidery, Mongolian style embroidered capes and jackets, and Japanese kimono, obi belts and silk embroidered flowers.  

Vivienne Tam

"Vivienne Tam’s Fall 2018 collection, which she laid out as a “spiritual journey” through the Himalayas to Tibet. It was a celebration both of the region’s rich culture and the search for inner peace." - Reference Monica Kim, Feb 14th 2018, New York, Vogue. https://www.vogue.com/fashion-shows/fall-2018-ready-to-wear/vivienne-tam
