I often find high fashion collections dramatic, over-the-top and a bit, well… ridiculous. I can appreciate great craftsmanship and an eye for beautiful design but sometimes it can be hard to see how some collections could ever exist in my own wardrobe.
Taking my seat at Ong-Oaj Pairam at Fashion Scout yesterday, I didn’t know what to expect. I’m not familiar with the designer, and the presence of three Made in Chelsea stars on the front row made me a little nervous… but as the models whisked their way down the beautiful decorated floor at Freemason’s Hall, I fell in love. And not with the MiC lot.
Skinny printed trousers, bright leather jackets and sweeping chiffon gowns – every single piece was wonderfully wearable.
Just look at those lines! It was a collection seemingly made for my size 12 frame – statement coats with nipped in waists, satin pencil skirts and floaty colour-block dresses were all designed to fit and flatter the female form.
I loved everything about the collection – not only the clothing but the amazing beehive hair and metallic heels. Definitely my favourite so far.
