The Project Fashion Show ’18
[Best_Wordpress_Gallery id=”39″ gal_title=”tpfs”]
I had the opportunity of attending The Project Fashion Show this past week. I was inspired. The atmosphere was greatly executed, and you could breathe the vibe that had been set. Urban, Chic, Eclectic are just a few words to describe the air and essence of what this alluring and intriguing clash of designers brought to the audience. The yellow and purple lighting warmed up the venue to bring us the asymmetrical, bold, exclusive and diverse talents of designers such as Jamel Hawk, Grayscale, V Cheri, Ryan Knew and Dieu est. It was exciting to witness how each designer captured our eye with a glimpse into their vision and interpretation of fashion.
Jamel Hawk brought us the perfect combination of well-tailored fashion with a twist. Combining simple fabrics with more elaborate ones and giving us another perspective of the “color block” trend, including interesting prints and solids stitched and aligned together to bring you something the average mind probably never thought would look amazing when combined into one piece. The cutouts on the garments for women were creative and detailed. The thought of a perfectly destructed look came alive in Jamel Hawk’s collection.
V Cheri captured us showing how simplicity along with a print or different fabric can make a huge difference in a piece. The very chic and sometimes almost tribal patterns in some of her garments made me almost feel at home (fashion wise). There’s a sense of safe haven when it comes to fashion, we all have a safe haven we just don’t know it sometimes. V Cheri brought us a “go-to” exquisite collection. Garments and pieces that a women could never go wrong with.
Grayscale was certainly no stranger to boldness and the definition of a confident and beautiful woman daring to stand out. The latex two piece that brought fierceness to life and had our eyes stuck on the model from start to finish was definitely a standout piece for Grayscale’s collection. Along with the sensuality brought by this collection there was also a sense of love, beauty, and femininity behind every garment. The ending was THE statement piece; a clear peplum strapless top that exuded confidence, strength and true definition of creativity.
Dieu est was the difference you’ve been waiting to see on an everyday piece. Marked by eloquent wording and bold text in many of the garments it made us want to wear it and show the world we meant it. The colors and prints were all we needed for the day to fill our emotional tank with fun vibes. Dieu est was inspirational and different. As stated in the beginning, it was what we’ve been waiting to see done on a regular everyday dress shirt.
Ryan Knew was patches, fabrics, and prints of innovative fashion. It gave us a different perspective of menswear. A cool and collected, but at the same time would turn heads when walking into a room. Fabrics you never thought would look well when stitched together. He knew what he was doing.
The vibes, the inspiration, the fashion, the sensuality, and everything within the show was an experience of its own. I would highly recommend the aspiring designer or fashion enthusiast to attend next years The Project Fashion Show. Thank you for allowing me to be a spectator and writer among your show.
