Hussein Chayalan continued

I'm so excited to go to the exhibition of theatre costumes designed by Christian Lacroix at the National Museum tomorrow. It should be a visual feast. Also, I've heard that there'll be an Audi Fashion Festival in Singapore this year featuring the work of designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Gareth Pugh. GARETH PUGH?! Wow, I'd love to see his garments up close.
Back to this post in question. There's volume in the garments but with quiet restraint. The muted palette and lighting give a slightly ethereal feel to the collection, as if models come from a different planet and have just arrived on Earth. A very clean and serene world theirs must be, for that's the aesthetic reflected in their attire. Clothes can certainly make one dream.
