Christopher Kane Rocks

Friday, December 31, 2010

I had a really hard time trying to decide on my favourite runway moment/show of the past decade.  Obviously Tom Ford's final collections for YSL and Gucci rank highly on the list, as well as the incredible shows from the couture collections every season.  There are also so many locals who have put on amazing shows in the past decade, NZFW's retrospective show at this year's fashion week certainly highlighted that. 

But for me the runway show that really stands out on my mind (it being so very bright might have something to do with it) is young Scottish designer Christopher Kane's outstanding debut at the 2006 London Fashion Week with his show stopping Spring/Summer 2007 collection.  Storming down the runway in micro short bandage dresses like Herve Leger's on acid, this collection made all the fashion editors take notice with it's ultra bright and super sexy spirit, no doubt inspired by 90's Azzedine Alaia and Gianni Versace. 

These dresses are so intricate, clever and in the most incredible shades, I just love how fun and fabulous it all is.  The parachute like belts, lacing and pretty frills really make me happy.  Kane was credited with bringing back fluro trend that followed with this collection and this splash of a debut secured his place as a designer to watch.  This collection sold out pretty much the instant it hit stores and it's not hard to see why.  Definitely my favourite runway show of the decade.
