Last night we went to Mimi Plange‘s presentation, “Scarred Perfection”. Her latest line draws inspiration from African tribal scarification rites of passage. This was evident in the patterns in the fabric used in this collection. The colour palate stuck to black, reds, and ochres.
Overall some really nice pieces and a good start for us for fashion week. Though the use of dry ice was a major problem – the ice in bowls of water failed to make smoke or do anything at all. It was also a little difficult to see the models in the back, some rotation would have been nice. I do have to say that is was nice seeing some familiar faces modeling in this presentation and I really liked the central dresses with the grooves in the fabric mimicking scar patterns.
