Nearly there with my fashion week coverage, it feels like it was months and months ago, and reality only wrapped up about a week ago.
Thai Nguyen was one of my favourite shows by far. Every dress was simply exquisite, silk, charmeuse, lace, beading and stunning applique detail, the level of craftsmanship was just beyond.
The collection was seemingly inspired in part by the Vietnamese traditional dress Ao Dai – but in a more elegant and subdued palette. Reference to the intense colours was present in subtle neon trims which juxtaposed beautifully with the neutral tones and delicate fabrics. Other dresses took on a more Western silhoutte, one shoulder dresses, ruffles and tiers that were reminscent of the 30's.
There were so many dresses that I would simply die to wear, one flower print dress with a neon trim I would live in all summer long, the white dress pictured above is the dress I'd dream of wearing to this years Snowball, something for every ocassion.
Breathtaking and a visual treat, Thai Nguyen is absolutely one to watch.
