With an exciting week of different designers, both local and international, Audi Fashion Festival definitely proved to be the fashion event of the year for Singapore. Renowned designers like Carolina Herrerra, Peter Pilotto and Ashley Isham (I had the pleasure to see all of those shows-which were all such magical shows to experience and watch!)
The show I was looking the most forward to definitely had to be Peter Pilotto. I had shamefully only come to know about Peter Pilotto's designs when the AFF calendar was released- his designs are all so unique and eccentric designs crafted with vibrant bursts of prints. The show was buzzing with a hoard of fashionistas, socialites, models and bloggers all over Singapore naming Daniel Boey, Oli Pettigrew, Rachel Erasmus from ANTM, all excited for the show.
Upbeat and fast-paced techno music filled the tent as the models started to parade the runway. The overall theme for these runway looks were the epitome of modern digital print, an upcoming trend that is leaving a big statement on people's outfits. Usually in a runway collections, there are always a few outfits that are ridiculously unwearable but what really impressed me about this collection was that I loved each and every look that was presented on the runway. It is practically an impossible task to create a look that everyone will love, but Peter Pilotto and his partner Christopher de Vos perfected their silhouettes with an equal balance between colour and print, making the designs look crisp and edgy at the same time. A colour palette consisting of vibrant hues of blue, red, and white made the clothes really stand out and the models were in sleek ponytails so that the centre of attention would be focused on the detailed crafting of the clothes. My favourite look in the show definitely had to be the monochromatic coat (featured above) because of its mirror-image prints and stylish flare it contained! A very distinct theme was also kaleidoscopic Although I loved the show, there were only around 15 designs and it left the audience (well me, at least) wanting to see more designs. Peter Pilotto has a very promising future as a designer and I cannot wait to see his future collections!
