Fashion Forward kicked off yesterday with an amazing line-up, Zareena and Hussein Bazaza were among the designers showcased yesterday and the night ended with Michael Cinco’s dazzling collection.
As soon as the first model walked down the runway in a fully embellished red ombre dress, I gasped! I love how Michael Cinco constructs his dresses and as she walked into the laser beams it looked as though the dress carried itself. A few more gorgeous red gowns followed and the two beautiful white wedding gowns with Michael Cinco’s signature peekaboo cutwork.
Black dresses followed with gorgeous lace detail, I loved the movement in the two floor length satin gowns and the very risque gowns which were transparent with bead-work all over, they flashed without flashing you. Then a new theme emerged, one that took me back to Barcelona, I suddenly remembered the Sagrada Familias stunning stained glass windows as these black dresses with gorgeous panels of colour strutted down the runway. The finale was insane, It was so creative, windows of colour on a cape-like train surrounded by the other paneled outfits. It was a visual feast and Michael Cinco certainly set a very good tone for Fashion Forward SS16.
