Feeric Fashion Week Day 4: Feeric Venue Shows
Written by Oana Neagoe
The forth evening of Feeric Fashion Week bought four wonderful collections to the audience focus. The evening was opened by the Indonesian designer, Retno Tan, whose collection was almost entirely made of recyclable materials and came as a reaction to the destruction of the ocean environment in Indonesia. Each creation was an explosion of colors — predominantly turquoise, marine blue, orange, red and green. The Indonesian designer developed from recyclable materials marine plants, such as seagrass, red algae, coral and seashells, proving her creative spirit and skills. “Ocean rainbow” was a collection, which included wearable items and addressed to those who trust the designer message.
The show went on with Pimpi Smith. The Argentinian designer has returned for the second time, on the Feeric Fashion Week runway, this time with “#PeaceForever”, a bag collection, whose source of inspiration was John Lennon, one of the major precursors and activists for peace, and his philosophy about he value of life, feelings and the constant search for music to bring a message for peace. Paz (which means peace in Spanish), Hope, Love is free, Love peace were some of the messages that could be read on the bags. The bags, which were entirely covered with sequins in all colors, had a similar size and shape so that the message could be in the spotlight. Probably, the most remarkable bag was the one with a rainbow and a dove on it — the rainbow as a symbol of the LGBT community and the dove as a symbol of peace.
“This collection is a silent demonstration of peace and love symbols. Of lit candels, of hands that help each other, of flowers, birds and colors suggesting unity and solidarity. It is a march for World Peace”, said the designer. Pimpi Smith’s show ended in the same spirit. The models walk on the runway with lit candles, which they gave to the audience.
The third presentation of the evening belonged to Visori. The designer demonstrated that the skin can become the main source of inspiration. His collection “Sutura” was a mixture of rough materials and bold colors — dark red, brown and black. The models were covered with a black glitter that made it look like pitch. Also, the metallic accessories gave a futuristic touch to the creations.
The last fashion show presented at Feeric Venue was the collection of Le Pampillon. The collection “X-Art” represent, according to the designer Manuel Pampillion, the revival of art and the beginning of a new era, ot represents the darkness in essence of art. The designer opted for a black and dark green contrast for his looks. The ecological leather dominated the runway throughout the entire show. However, the key element of the collection were the feathers, which the designer tried to introduce in almost every outfit. The avant-garde architecture was presented in the volumes and cuts of this interesting proposal.
