The IFA Paris 2014 Graduate Fashion Show
When: 21st of October 2014
What: The IFA Paris 2014 Graduate Fashion Show
Being old graduates ourselves, one of the shows during Shanghai Fashion week we look most forward to see was the IFA Paris 2014 graduation Show. This season 16 graduates showcased 46 looks of months of preparations and hard work.
There was a dreamy feeling to the first part. Tops and dresses made from chiffon floating from the model's body when walking down the runway. Complimented with beautiful beaded details down the trousers. Then there were more solid looks, like the colorful patchwork on the following dresses. We were brought on an adventure starting from the woodlands to wildflowers, from the sea to the stars. There were strong colors, cut outs, patchwork and beadings. Some hints of ethnicity that we can imagine described that particular individual designer, sophistication and sexiness. This was a relatable, wearable collection, yet challenging in ways that progress the fashion discussion. It was a runway with variations of styles that would appeal to on or the other. The principal must have been quite pleased to see that the result of sweat and tears come down the IFA runway as it divines well for each student’s debut, for their future careers. Truly a great show with great craftsmanship!
