Runway Roundup: Yun Ju Ko (Kate)
I think Jill and I were at odds on this collection, but I'm already a devoted fan! The colour palette of toffee, caramel creams, lemon and blue hues was really beautiful. Cutting of the collection was outstanding, with well structured, paneled jackets that hugged the model perfectly met with high waisted trousers that in soft fabrics, simply stunning, could be a perfect evening wear alternative to an LBD. Chiffon and silk were draped, deconstructed and manipulated to create dresses of volume, detail and great interest - certainly an eye-catching collection. Shapes were new and innovative, and the asymmetric dress is definitely now a lynch pin to the fashionistas way of dressing. Soft pleats and folds in clever fabric combinations meant that this collection really stood out. There was so much work in each piece that I was floored by the cutting skills displayed here. My favourite pieces would definitely include the high-waisted trousers, which would be drooled over by many a fashionably lady, and the empire-line dresses that would look at home at any glitzy premiere. I'm keeping an eye on this one!
