[we mentioned last week that the audi joburg fashion week would kick off on the 20th of this month. it's well underway now...stay tuned for the highlights.]
ABOUT THE BRAND: "
WHAT WE LOVED: this was our first encounter with the spero villioti brand and we were positively dazzled by the kaleidoscope of wide-ranging pieces. there's something for whatever it is you're into, especially if the words "glamor" and "fabulous" form the backbone of your mantra. we were also enchanted by the extraordinary detail and execution in this collection...and, truth be told, we got our fashion equivalent of a sugar rush looking - and lusting after - these fabulous frocks.
SUGGESTIONS: there was far too much going on and this collection lacked a clear theme and direction. too many colors, too many elements, and entirely too crammed for our taste. what emerges is a designer who's brilliant and versatile but who made this far too obvious by showing everything he can do. all in all, a bloody good show - but it could've been that much closer to perfection if he did more with less.
