Last Thursday and Friday at LG Fashion Week Beauty by L’Oreal Paris, the runway and studio rooms were filled with Russian influences (think Ushanka‘s) and femininity in elegant goth and ladylike punky leather, as well as chic suits and dresses punched up with deep purple tones and lots of fur accents.
From Cydelic by Choryin‘s black teardrops to looks that Helena Bonham Carter would ogle amorously, Cydelic’s studio show was showmanship and drama in the best way.
We loved the graceful flair Sunny Fong brought to the table for Vawk. The leopard pencil skirt hit another trend seen at many shows: exposed zippers.
A great strong and and dramatic opening to Lundström. A group of models strutted down the runway with luxe black and ivory faux-Mongolian lamb coats and vests.
Not a look for everybody, but the dark, nu-goth vibe at Heather Lawton and Sid Neigum showcased black-on-black ensembles that would make Rick Owens proud.
One of Amanda Lew Kee‘s highlights were her Kimono-inspired jackets. The wispy sheer floral outer layer showed a soft side of the designer with a delicate Asian-inspired pattern.

And last, but definitely not least – the closing night show for Line Knitwear collection. A return to the ’70s with bell-bottom flares, burnt oranges and tie-dyed, pleated skirts had our hearts skipping a hippie beat with every outfit. Boho-cozy.

The end of the week of fashion means just the beginning for fashion lovers, to emulate and create their own looks from all the designers that we watched and loved.
