LFW emerging designers catwalk.

Q BY JIN JOO MA was absolutely my favorite collection of the evening, the cuts, shapes and clever inserts of flamingo printed silks was just breathtaking. The rest of the show really struggled to steal the light away from the opening designer in terms of elegance and minimalistic effect. The dress featured on the right was my favorite dress of the entire show, i struggled to get a photo of it from the front (note to self: arrive on time to shows so I can get better bloody seats)  but it had the most stunning shape. I really look forward to seeing more from Jin Joo Ma, she is truly a budding genius.
Zerrin Acini was probably my second favorite of the evening, I don't really wear bodycon clothing purely for self conscious reasons and I prefer more interesting silhouettes, but the bright colours and geometric (almost robotic) patterns/cuts on the collection of dresses was really interesting, and would be super fun to wear out for the evening.
Obscure couture was the main show of the evening, and at first I wasn't loving it. The first few designs, although daring and interesting, lacked in the simplicity that I tend to gravitate towards. Think sweaters with swear words, hoodies with cut out neoprene neon sections and hot pants. I don't doubt that they were impressive, but they didn't excite me. Just as I set my camera down, out comes the dress you see on your left. I blinked, It was never something I would have thought I'd love- but I did. It was everything one could look for in a babydoll dress, sweet with an edge. The designs continued down this path, and paired with the massive platforms they were paired with (not seen, again, my bad) they were silhouettes of perfection.
SK was also pretty beautiful, especially the wedding dress (see right). The designs were an experiment with white/gold and different dress shapes and they all looked simple, but gorgeous. The wedding dress really stole the show for me, it was honestly one of the most breathtaking things when you saw it in real life. 

There was also another designer who showcased there- but I didn't much fancy anything he did and I wanted to keep this post relatively short. Enjoy!
