  • Eco Fashion Week – 2016

    For Eco-Fashion Weeks 10th edition I was honoured to be apart of this years Chic Sheet Challenge. The Challenge was to create a garment made out of recycled bedsheets from the Fairmont Waterfront we were allowed to dye them using Tintex Home dyes. The Theme for this years Chic Sheets was Balmain. The Paris Fashion House Balmain is Celebrating it’s 70’s anniversary, we were asked to choose an era to replicate through the houses design. My design inspiration comes from the mid 50’s to the 60’s when the allure of hollywood began to sweep the nation. The dresses were sexy, edgy and onscreen Glamour! I designed the dress with that in mind and how would Pierre Balmain & Olivier Rousting design a dress together would look like. Mixing the old with the new. Inspiration             My Dress is now on display at Pacific Centre from April 14th to 30th, alongside an online voting system to choose the winner. Please take a moment and follow the link to vote for me. Chic Sheets Vote Thank You XO’s Sarah Couture PhotoCredit Peter Jensen

  • Alexander McQueen – Paris Fashion Week

    What was the last fashion show that viscerally moves the audience? Sarah Burton’s Alexander McQueen spring/summer 2016 show, with its poetic, exquisite dresses and stoic integrity stole everyone’s heart. Burton said she’d been inspired by the Huguenots who escaped Catholic France in the 17th century. The people of London’s Spitalfields from the late 17th Century and the Huguenot migrants who arrived as religious refugees were the starting point for Burton, they brought with them a skill in weaving and floral design. Those artisanal crafts were mined to the hilt; along with a love of folklore and the idea of heirloom. Fabrics looked aged and decayed, from gentle frays in the surface of washed silk gowns to jeans with exaggerated cuffs that were shredded to the extreme. There was an undercurrent of fetishism here but it was tame and more refined in its execution; silver chain harnesses were draped loosely around the body over razor-sharp black tailoring. One of the best shows of Spring summer 2016. PhotoCredit WWD

  • Rick Owens Paris Fashion Week – SS/2016

    Rick Owens The designer is known for pushing boundaries, but this season he took it to the next level with a deeply symbolic show. Today at his Paris Fashion Week show, models came down the runway with other women strapped upside-down to their bodies, their limbs hanging limply. These people were tied to their torsos like rucksacks, and along with a group of regular models, were wearing the designer’s monastic SS16 collection. This was quintessentially Rick Owens, artful, provocative and profoundly innovative. In his own words, he explained the symbolic meaning behind this performative show: In the Spring men’s collection which shares the same name (Cyclops), that focussed vision was propulsive and aggressive. When applied to women’s, I see that focussed vision being more about nourishment, sisterhood/motherhood and regeneration; women raising women, women becoming women, and women supporting women – a world of women I know little about and can only attempt to amuse in my own small way…Straps can be about restraint but here they are all about support and cradling. Straps here become loving ribbons.   PhotoCredit WWD/BOF

  • Gucci Opens Milan Fashion Week SS16

    Milan Fashion Week has started with a bang thanks to Gucci. It was the second womenswear show to be presented under the watchful eye of newly-appointed creative director Alessandro Michele and it definitely didn’t disappoint. And the clothes. History always looks better second or third time around – and the version of 70s fashion that Michele served up on Gucci’s catwalk was, in every sense, fantastic. The flared trousers, the crazy Elton John  glitter glasses (alternating with  more sober Deidre Barlow frames), the Lurex ruffles on sleeves and hems, the rick-rack trims on block-coloured skirts and raised-waist dresses – the sentiments were pure 70s.  PhotoCredit WWD
