New Gen RAFW

The New generation show 1 on the friday was my last show of RAFW, i was tired, hungry, had sore feet from my heels and really needed an energy boost, but as soon as this show started i stood up and took notice.

The designers in this category were Mok Theorem, Christopher Dobosz, Paper skye, Poppy Lissiman and Arj Selvam.

My absolute favourite's were Mok theorem and Paper skye. I could wear absoultely everything they sent down the runway.

Mok Theorem stuck to a palette of pastels, incorporating lace, ruching, cutouts, tailoring and sheer fabrics. The models had messy hair in an updo and a neon lip, the collection flowed like a collection of my dream outfits, one after the other.

Christopher Dobosz continued with the tailored look that was featured heavily throughout most of the collections at RAFW as well as using a pastel palette.

Paper skye was next of the rank sending down an array of sheer, free flowing looks consisting of maxi's, oversized tanks, pleating and lots of layering. Magaret Zhang of Shine by Three styled and modelled beautifully for the labels lookbook which were included in the gift bags. The wedges used throughout the show by ALDO shoes were stunning and am definately looking to invest in a pair.

Poppy Lissiman added a pop of bright colours with her collection to break up the show and models wore quirky oversized tassle earrings in an array of exuberant colours.

Finally Arj Selvam was the last to show in this category and he changed things up by having a young man play the cello on the runway whilst models walked down to the soothing sounds. His line was very tailored and included dapper and sophisticated menswear.
