Set in a small studio, the Focus Taiwan show was intimate and eclectic with a diverse collection of mens and womens wear fashions.
The show started strong with models in black facemasks and sharp, bold dresses. These pieces screamed with vibrant colors like blue, red, orange and yellow, resembling the pattern of stained glass. Zippered leggings, symmetrical patterns and sharp lines also added to the tough attitude.
The following pieces were a transition into more wearable clothing including blue bohemian tie-dye maxi dresses with scarves, Converse and combat boots, to mauve and nude separates, tank dresses and even a universal wrap dress.
Pops of vibrant orange and electric blues in the line were shocking, while nonetheless intriguing as a departure from the roughness featured in the beginning of the show.
Accessories were few and far between, including only a few statement cuffs and necklaces and hair and makeup were kept unfussy and clean.
A few mens wear pieces wrapped up the show, featuring crisp white pants and button-ups embellished with black fabric for a stark contrast. Not to mention, their shoes were made of light-colored canvas and roughed up with designs using household safety pins.
While the space was small, the collection featured no shortage of designs from across a variety of inspirations. The Focus Taiwan show presented pieces fit for every woman, or man, at numerous stages throughout their fashion journey.
