‘Desirable Darkness’ represents the story of human travail and triumph. It is a journey through the depths of darkness, held together by fragile strings of hope until a new era is born. This tale is told through pronounced graduations of colour and style.
The visual journey begins with moody black pieces that focus on tailoring. Using intricate folds to create shape and extend proportions, the range evolves into bright yellows, pinks, oranges and blues embellished with silk fringing, leather and hardware details.
Styled by one of the fashion industry’s most influential stylists, Kelvin Harries, the MBFWA Highlight show focuses on key trends from the 2012/13 S/S collections. The sell out show is repeated each evening at the coveted 8:30pm timeslot.
