MIN WU SS16 – London Fashion Week

Min Wu took to the Institute of the Contemporary Arts to present her SS16 digital presentation. The room was decorated with fluorescent rod lights hanging from the ceiling whilst one of the walls played the digital fashion film showcasing the collection.

To get a closer look to the collection models stood in a block stage with chemistry lab bottles and props around them. The first set of looks saw the models come out all dressed in white aside from the watercolour detailing each look had, resembling the Min Wu invite. Each look had intricate features like strips of plastic and bolts which created makeshift braces or decorated necklines. This added an extra edge to the outfits. Looks consisted of a-line silhouettes created by culottes, ‘A’ shape crop tops, midi skirts and shift dresses. The second set of looks entailed of only denim but consistency was kept with the hardware detailing. Models wore a selection of crop tops and shorts and oversized jackets that acted as dresses. For the final set of looks a more sweet approach was taken with a very colourful palette including pinks, oranges, mint greens and yellows. The details remained with raw hemming, and ruffling making an appearance.

Looks were tied together as models wore their hair in messy ponytails with pastel strips going down it whilst the eye make-up was a shocking pink. It was an exciting collection by Wu full of versatility, transition and detail.
