Demoo Parkchoonmoo autumn/winter 2016 collection catwalk show for NYFW
Demoo Parkchoonmoo autumn/winter 2016 collection at the Skylight Clarkson Square was an elegant demonstration in the art of war. This collection had uniformity and was dense in Asian tradition that focused on an intricate belting technique and kimono-style references.
Each model pranced down the runway, jaws clinched eyed pierced commanded attention in regal-esque attire. Traditional boxy cuts were reinterpreted as a delicate boyish silhouette that paired with wide leg trousers created massive movement. The skinny movement has indeed made its departure. The wider leg has proven to be way more flattering.
Weighted furs and wool overcoats seem to still curve around the body and display a feminine shape. Surprisingly, the subtle hints of Aberdeen harmonized the collection dominated by grey and black. Color-blocking neutrals, brocade embroidered vests, jodhpurs pants, and wrap skirts with high waistline was designed with precision and artistry.
The repeated textured sash enfolded at the waist, clinched the body in a way that was alluring. Backstage, wardrobe as well as Demoo herself, was seen adjusting and examining the knotted belts to ensure they were tied to perfection. This seasons collection celebrated the independent woman that also relishes in her femininity. The illustrious detailing was an obvious labor of love for the designer. With tear-filled eyes, she bowed to audience in victory.
