SIZZLING AND ELECTRIC- THE VIVIENNE TAM 2017 FALL RUNWAY SHOW
Shining headlights, honking cars, and the entire world racing by in a blur in the blink of an eye- that is what city life is like on the streets. No matter how much you try and put it into words, the essence of it can only be experienced if you live the city life yourself and feel the breeze of the rush hour brush past your sides- Vivienne Tam, however, succeeded in capturing the essence perfectly in her 2017 Fall Runway Show.
Showcased in New York City, Vivienne Tam’s Runway Show was the point to be at if you are one who enjoys and appreciates genuineness and authenticity; a story being told through fashion and style. A pioneer of intermingling the East and the West, Vivienne finds herself looking for ways to represent the Eastern culture and way of life through modern fashion trends due to possessing a huge market in Hong Kong. For her Fall collection this year, Hong Kong, the city where life is a blur and electricity charges your steps, acted as an inspiration. The bustling atmosphere, the vibrant scenes, and attention commanding lights are all visible in Vivienne’s collection and life simply screams out at you as the models walk down the ramp in stylish yet telling outfits.
Vivienne’s characteristic style of bringing an urban attitude to her chic style is quite obvious in this Fall collection. Her models donned natural makeup and swept back hair, albeit stunning, yet they phased into the background as her line commanded the runway and bound the attendees of the show into its magic spell. You could hear a pin drop as the models sashayed down the front of the catwalk and the audience took note to a new trend they didn’t even know they needed, or better- desired. The visuals were stunning and had the entire audience mesmerized- puff sleeves falling off of slender shoulders, lines and patterns fading into striking neon and fuchsia backgrounds, androgynous dress styles that were the perfect amalgamation of tight fitting and loosely hanging, asymmetric skirts with lace and metallic embellishments- simply a sight to behold.
As fashion week is giving to bloggers, Vivienne Tam is still front and centre of the entire happening. Paris Hilton and Tiffany Trump are amongst the many other influential names that have graced the front row. The trend setting “Rustan’s Group” are set to take these designs back to the Asia to sell to Vivienne’s loyal home fan base back where inspiration for the collection has been taken from.
This is certainly going to be a very good year for Vivienne Tam if the Fall Runway Show is any indication to the future and we couldn’t be happier that we are here to witness it transpire before us.
