Every year, the designers at Style Fashion Week showcase an eclectic display of collections for exclusive media, press and influencers. This year caught us by surprise as the designers exhibited such individuality that we had to do a double take. IONICA’s SS18 runway show was one of them.
It was love at first sight for us. Not one to miss, the collection gave us texture with white airy fabrics that reminded us of a new wave Chanel paired with the French Riviera-inspired rose dipped silks and black silhouettes. The edgy music pumped up the audience as a dose of Europe exploded across the runway. Exotic looking models with lengthy silhouettes donned the luxurious fabrics with an air of confidence and ease that exuded effortlessness in a good way.
Designer Ionica Moldovianu poured her heart into the collection. We had the chance to catch her backstage to discuss the process behind such a cultural showcase. “After experiencing all the luxury and the glamour as well as the phenomenal atmosphere of the French Riviera, I changed a lot of the collection just to reflect that,” she said. “The kinda of fabrics I focused on this year had texture; more rich textures and fabrics, silk floral prints. I love them all. “
What we also loved was that Style Fashion Week was head in quite an interesting venue at the Intrepid Air, Sea & Space Museum at Pier 86. Style Fashion Week Runs through this Saturday, be sure to put this on your fashion calendar for the week ahead.
