Fashion Scout at London Fashion Week
Beaded headwear that looked like chandeliers dazzled the crowd as Ones To Watch designer, Susan Fang showcased her AIRWAVE Autumn/Winter 18 collection. Drifting down the runway were light, lilac tulle overlay skirts while caged colour blocked skirts created a striking contrast.
Susan explores the interaction of the body with her clothing by weaving long strips of various textiles to form her garments. A skirt and a long black satin coat, paired with yellow and burgundy ruffle trousers exemplify her approach to design and the human form.
A long all-white ruffled dress was in the spotlight with its’ innovative design catching the audience’s attention. It was reminiscent of a deconstructed wedding dress with gorgeous ruffling down the front, and fabric gathered at neck to form a halo at the collar. This showcased the interdimensional elements of the fabric that glided along the marble floors as she experimented with silhouettes.
In 2015, Susan’s Central Saint Martins graduate collection was highly credited and was featured in Dazed, The Evening Standard and Dezeen.
