The Fyodor Golan show was one of my faves. Held at 'The Vaults', which at first glance you thought was going to be a real dive, as we had to queue up in a graffiti splattered tunnel with the occasional stench of sewage wafting up our nostrils. However, when walking through the underground venue, it became apparent it was pretty darn cool. Inside was fabulous too, with great lighting for the catwalk and an inverted pyramid centre stage, built around a structure of projectors to live stream imagery. The designs were slightly out there, but not so much that you thought 'my God who would wear that in real life' - the collection, in my humble opinion, was pretty wearable! If I had the money, I would definitely be purchasing the beautiful buttercup yellow, full skirted dress! The collection had quite a futuristic feel with some of the fabrics being used such as the iridescent foil like material being featured in sections of many items, silicone finished and plastic, neon motifs. The design due collaborated with Microsoft for this collection, focusing on a celebration of 'digital romanticism'.
'The collection explores form and function via intricate folds and pleats that frame geometric silhouettes, embellished with iridescent and neon plastic floral motifs. 90’s Rave culture influence colours and textures throughout the collection. Satin abrics woven with plastic threads are printed with distorted images of flowers and footballers, creating screen-like images that showcase vividness and energy.'
