“An exotic paradise surrounded by unfolding mystery and discovery” is the description attached to the Farah Angsana show, and it certainly was.
The first ten looks were restrained to ivory, black and silver dresses that were simple but with their own flair. Some trends spotted in these looks were peplum waistlines, low-cut backs, and sky high slits. As the music picked up a techno beat, the dresses transformed. Look number eleven featured vibrant hues and interesting geometric shapes and beading. A defined waistline helped to tie the looks together. This was accomplished by monochromatic skinny belts, heavily beaded empire waistlines, or structured shift dresses.
The models were uniformed with minimalistic makeup and hair that included black winged eyeliner, a bold red lip, and a high, sleek straight ponytail. A jeweled bangle was spotted occasionally, but besides that no accessories were featured throughout the show letting the dresses speak for themselves.
Silk crepe gowns and shift dresses were displayed frequently as well as chiffon and organza evening attire. Beading was heavily displayed around necklines, waistlines, and capped sleeves. The beading helped to tie the looks seamlessly since many looks featured the same coral and green beading. Some stand out looks included two multi-colored tribal sequin dresses. The final dress was a jaw dropping crystal encrusted tulle feathered evening gown that helped to tie the show together. The final look featured the softer ivory palette from the beginning, but also had a fun flair with multi-colored feathers and beading accents. Celebrity Spotting: Toni Trucks
