The time is now 7:21, the show is fashionably late. Everyone was rushing to their seat and there is still a line of people at the door, no doubt eager fashionistas trying to get in without a ticket. The music suddenly blares from the loud speakers. The show is beginning.
The Hexa by Kuho show took place in the heart of the marais. People from all worlds were there from ex-supermodel Janice Dickinson to Spanish actress Rossy De Palma to New York CIty DJ’s The Misshapes. Overlooking the fashionably late start and over heated space (seriously, everyone was sweating bullets), the show was entertaining. The models followed a zig zag pattern outlined in white tape on the floor while wearing high platform shoes whose soles split for easier movement.
The show was about 15 minutes long, which is very typical of most fashion shows, and one of the memorable looks of the night were the models’ hair. The tightly twisted braids combined with a headpiece that fell on their foreheads really help set the tone for the feminine warrior motif they were trying to accomplish.
The earthy tones of the clothes along with the structured, uniform like characteristics helped to carry the feminine warrior idea home. It is always a pleasure to see runway clothes that are wearable and not just one of kind works of art.
PS: I am fully aware there is no graphic design related material here. Just excited to be a part of the audience of a show and not behind the scenes for once 🙂
