KLDSCP has been known in its 5 presentations as a platform in which new ideas and proposals are presented to the fashion industry. This is why we decided to do our first joint post for such an important event. We are very excited to be able to talk to you all about our impressions, thoughts and what we loved most.
These are 4 of the 9 designers who presented collections
José de la O
José’s collection was known for its simplicity, using a classic color palette –black and white- in a very interesting way. Since they’re very basic colors that never fail, elegance and soberness are the best way to describe his collection. The details and necklines gave the collection a very fresh and modern feel, which was complimented to perfection with heavily, lined eyes and high chignons.
Ingrid presented her collection “Dulce Estación” which consisted of pieces in vibrant colors (orange, teal, yellow and white) and perfect printed fabrics for summer that you can use year-round thanks to our weather. The heavy makeup, doll-lashes and tight up-do’s contrast the cleanness of the clothing.
We loved the inclusion of kids into the collection, presenting outfits that are comfortable, fun, and above all, very appropriate for children. This proves that the prints aren’t exclusive for women or men’s clothing only, and also that a great, versatile design is enough for the pieces to be suitable for kids.
Verónica presented a collection of pieces in neutral shades with a few accent colors, like salmon. The use of soft fabrics and the combination of sheer and thicker materials give the pieces a very light feel. Despite their simplicity, the outfits had details that made them interesting, such as the layering of fabrics and flower prints that stand out over the sheerness of some materials. There were also a few fringes and also our favorite detail- the subtle laser cutouts, which made the designs even more interesting.
The hair-do’s with unique accessories and details, makeup with nude lips and tanned, bronzy skin complimented the looks to perfection, creating a very integral collection.
Andrea presented a series of two-piece outfits and dresses in vibrant colors and bold prints. While our country is very traditional, Andrea dared to break down preconceptions and patterns in highlighting all the pieces in an outfit with clutches and accessories that were also in bright colors.
The hair and make up suited the the outfits. The hair was let down in a wet look, while the eyes were very soft, focusing on the lips by giving them a fuschia color.
Andrea offers outfits that are very well thought out and put together, but at the same time risky. Her collection confirms that neon colors, apart from being wearable, are also very flattering for every skin tone.
We’ll be back tomorrow with the second part of our review.
