Following a successful morning at London Fashion Week’s Edeline Lee Presentation (view the previous post and plenty of pictures, here) we returned to the city Hub to attend the Ryan Lo catwalk show!In the same building as the Designer Showrooms, we entered the large space with seating either side and the catwalk down the middle.The catwalk was lined with large pink, kitsch ‘Chinese New Year-esque’ arches to frame the models as they strutted down the runway. Even with the minimal style of only three arches, the designs still captured the aesthetics of Chinatowns across the globe.The scene was set for the attendees with the musical accompaniment of the likes of Disney’s Mulan for the ultimate presentation of the Western perception of Asian culture.
And all too quickly the show began with Lo’s signature style of more-is-more. Check out the critique and review of the show written by Kasimiira, for The 405, here.
Even some of the crowd exuded the more-is-more style.The finale epitomised the hyper-feminine style of the A/W16 collection.
With the show completed, some people left to attend another fashion event, others roamed around the space. Those in the space inspected the arches and socialised with other members of the fashion industry.I took just a moment to sit on the Front Row (for probably the only time in my life)!We exchanged emails about other shows we might attend later that day, as well as the details of the Edeline Lee afterparty we would (definitely) spend our evening at!
