Steffie Christiaens SS13
I almost didn’t go to this show. I was running from one show, to the next (literally) and really didn’t think I would make it. But I surprisingly did! Although I arrive panting and prespiring, just in time for the show to be…delayed. Yay. But it gave me a chance to cool down. Unfortunately my alloted seat was long gone, but I got a spot on the side where I would get good pictures without bothering anyone.
When the lights finally dimmed signaling the start of the show there was a loud sigh of reliefe from the photographer’s pit, where my collaborator, Lauren Cashwell had been for the better part of the last hour and a half. That’s some major patience! The result is this beautiful video on the show/collection, which started with a video of a girl underwater. Lauren has super-imposed that over the rest of the runway show (which was fabulous and barfoot), to create a touching and artistic interpretation of the event.

The collection was fun and funky, accessorized and constructed. It seems to be the thrend for the SS113 season : architectural. Playing with volumes. Some draping. It was fun to see models barefoot, and imagine how they must have enjoyed a catwalk that was not wrought with danger in stilted stilettos!
Great brand and lovely post!
