Yesterday was the opening night for World Mastercard Fashion Week 2014 to showcase designers' Sping 2014 collections. I attended the event on behalf of my work with the responsibilities to provide editorial coverage for our projects and I figured heck, why not snap a couple of photos for myself!
Of all 3 shows that I attended last night, I can definitely say that Sid Neigum was my absolute favorite. His artistic play on texture through a monochromatic pattern demontrates that you don't necessarily need color in your wardrobe in order to add detail to your look. With the write construction of materials and through the correct choice of fabric, intricite details can be created in the absence of color.
Pink Tartan's collection was also beautiful, and played on the fringe trend, but I wasn't exactly feeling the whole 70's vibe that was going on with the geometric prints on the pajama like sets and the bold white piping. Some of the backless jumpsuits did have stunning silhouetts albeit they also had a crazy fringe trim.
The winner of the Mercedes-Benz Startup actually ended up being Sid Neigum, which was suitably appropriate since he such an immaculate collection. The fact that he was already showing his collection on the runways himself demonstrates his aptitude in the fashion industry and a strong promising career.
I've already fallen in love with so many of his textural masterpieces, if only I had a place to wear them to!
