Its all about the fabric for Spring 2015; this year designers have taken to their materials and fused together various fabrics and textures to reflect their themes and inspiration.
Sheer fabrics took the stage at Katie Gallagher’s S/S 2015 presentation. In the collection, which she titled Fantasm, the looks embodied the idea of inconsistent nature and the concept of things that exist in perception only. Opening the show with a series of all-black looks that then faded into shades of grey, white and nude tones the mesh material, that was not only so dominant in the show but also draped around several of the models faces, brought about the impermanent concept that Gallagher was striving for.
Using a lot of blended denim, chevron, lace and quilted sequin in his S/S 2015 collection Electric West, Jay Godfrey combined fabrics to juxtapose the raw yet feminine aspects of his looks. Following his inspiration of 60’s and 70’s rock ’n’ rollers, Godfrey used the combination of fabric’s to represent a signature blend of country with classic rock.
Meskita brought silk chiffon and neoprene to the runway in the S/S 2015 collection, inspired by Egyptian goddesses and warriors. Meskita kept the pieces feminine with pleats and light and flowing materials while using a gold-tinged palette and paneling simmering fabric making each piece able to stand alone.
With the idea of streamlining and stripping away, inspired by her theme spring cleaning, Sally La Pointe kept her looks and palette simple, with great attention to fabric and shape. Laying the materials in a perfect draping position, La Pointe gave a modern impression to her collection while also keeping it eternally fresh.
Inspired by her travels in Morocco, Ulla Johnson brought volume to her S/S 2015 collection with hand knotted and embroidered pieces that give a background and story to every piece, as well as detailed layering and tassels on the shoes which keep in line with the airy Moroccan feel.
