Hey man, you never know when I'm gonna decide to blog about fashion week. The last time I did it was FW15 and I STAND BY WHAT I SAID ABOUT YEEZY so don't think I'm changing my mind. But this season, I found that the designers I was most drawn to were those that used sheer fabric in their pieces and embroidered over it. I've been loving this look for a while now, and even tried my own hand at embroidering a while back. I have been working on a jacket for like a year now (whoops) but I never get tired of looking at the incredible designs these artists make with some string and fabric.
I mean????? What kind of blessed beings are we that we get to be alive in this era of Valentino. Every season lately is an absolute DREAM. Not to say that previous ones weren't, but you know. The sheer top with the strange almost tarot-y skirt? The sparkly waves???? I am quickly learning that this collection just makes me speechless so I should probably stop trying to write about it.
Admittedly, this collection reminds us a lot of our good friends at Valentino, but that's fine with meeeee! These patterns are a little more dizzying than Valentino's, a little thicker and wilder. I love the cuts on these dresses, as well. They seem so medieval, and that is what kind of solidifies them as still being McQueen.
Alright well, maybe this was just a collection of dresses that would make me feel like a fairytale princess. What can I say about this collection? The darker dresses are for my secret rendez-vous by the light of the moon, sneaking out of the castle walls. The white dresses are for my appearances in court floating across the room making policies to take from the rich and feed the poor.
