*This is part of Ramp 1885?s newest series, “Fashion Travelogue–Medellin Edition” where we personally highlight the runways of the city’s fashion week, explore the city’s greater style scene including cool boutiques and fab street style and chats with the city’s style makers. Perfect for the fashion traveller.
Inspired by the work of American artist Anne Truitt, designer Silvia Tcherassi presented a jaw-dropping 25 ensembles at the prestigious Museum of Modern Art of Medellin. A special evening presented by Argo the leader in cement production, the much anticipated closing show, Tcherassi had models walk the ramp which was adorned with scultpural columns which added a structural elegance to the overall presentation.
The Colombian designer from Barranquilla, is seen as the next Carolina Herrera, presented her Spring/Summer 2014 to a packed house filled to the rim with the city’s fashionable set at this exclusive invitation-only evening.
The silhouette continued to be feminine with lace and sequins used to emphasize the decadent detail which adorned each look. Looks varied from dresses, to coats, incorporating fantastic fringe detail on some, while using an intriguing colour palette throughout.
The fabulous gowns were made out of a unique neoprene material and the designer continued on her creative path which then progressed with the use of bugle beads all possessing avant-garde infused cuts. Her collection of suits evoked the essence of Baroque with applique embroidery and organic forms.
And of course let’s not forget the fantastic colour coordinated gladiator style stilettos and the lace fingerless gloves. Gorgeous.
