2011’s RCA show was well presented and there were some wonderful details.
The standard of techniques and craftsmanship was high. On the whole, the collections were pretty safe and actually not as crazy or expressive as we had thought. Having said that, there really were some beautiful highlights. The stunning soft plastic and rubber, liquid looks from Designer Itziar Vaquer, not to mention the stunning shapes and sublime soft colour palette this talented Designer incorporated.
Some fun Knitwear, especially on the Menswear side. Animals and giant bulky fringe seemed to be a theme here with fun, street style Knitwear from Cherie Newing and Hannah Taylor.
Many beautifully tailored designs approached the catwalk and tiny important details that simply made you want to drag the model off that catwalk and rip that clothing off to touch and drool over those pretty details.
Some brilliant millinery that I am sure Lady Gaga is clawing her way to right now, and some fabulous fur pieces!!
Our ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE Designer was Philipp Schoueller. The colours, the plastics, the sheer Fluro colours layered in light weight and edgy designs. Also the coolest accessories. This Designer’s collection was HOT!
