Nothing like a great show to kick start the week, no? Count on designers Lulu Tan-Gan, Dennis Lustico, Cesar Gaupo, and Joey Samson to deliver an evening filled with amazing clothes. Bringing back the salon tradition that set the foundations of couture houses, the four contemporaries come together to give you another night at the Salon.
Opening the evening was Cesar Gaupo with a collection inspired by a fantasy of fairy tales and pastel colors. Giving emphasis to his intricate folds and structured drapes, Cesar’s play on vivid color blocks sets the mood right for the night.
Next up was the Lulu Tan-Gan who showcased a collection that we know younger girls would covet. The night’s solo female designer puts a pastel twist to sporty dressing with delicate knits and feminine shapes.
Turning the tides, Dennis Lustico treats us to pops of color with an offbeat contrast of essentially girly dresses and eye catching brogues.
Lastly, and a personal favourite, was Joey Samson’s take on sport luxe. From floor grazing silk robes to baseball jersey dresses, picking a favorite look from his collection was a harder than getting hit by a baseball bat. But two items worth lusting over were his quirky bags, one in the shape of a football and the other a volleyball.
