Fashion is about taking something traditional, rooted and making it relevant to the age we live in. Ruffles, Pleats, Gathers and fullness has made a strong statement at London Fashion Week S/S ’20. Taking forms of being soft and rouched in Victoria Beckham’s collection, or as a subtle exaggeration at Burberry and Roksanda and as a bold conversation starter at Molly Goddard and Christopher Kane.. it makes me wonder on how these vintage, feminine aspects were essential in the Victorian era as it is today.
It maybe masked in athleisure, casual chic, suited power, graphic prints and even eerie ballgowns, but it makes its place like the boned corsets and crinolines did! Spring 2020 looking delicate yet powerful.
