Show report: David Ferreira Fashion Scout AW16 London Fashion Week - Merit Award Winner
DAVID FERREIRA’S AW16 Merit Award winning collection, Opulent Child, was a riot of innovative shapes and indulgent details, intended to hold a mirror up to a society in which image and our perceptions of it define us. The University of Westminster graduate designed for a contemporary clique, drawing inspiration from a #squad of the likes of Marie Antoinette, Scarlett O’Hara, the Greece Pink Ladies and Gossip Girl characters. Engineered shapes and clashing textures in hot pink and red tones brought to life the ostentation of collection’s name. The finale featured the most remarkable piece - a vibrantly coloured fishtail gown complete with padded train and peek-a-boo appliqué fan neckline that covered the model’s face. An intrepid presentation from a designer to watch.
