VOICES: In place of a runway show, or a typical salon-style format, designer Edeline Lee hosted a two-hour presentation at the BFC Show Space in London.
More than 20 women were invited to share their experiences, present a reading or sing opera at the event as Lee said she wanted to provide a stage for women to be seen and heard.
Each orator, who was dressed in black, was introduced by a model who wore one of Lee’s latest designs for her fall 2019 show. The clothes were rich in color, there were jewel-toned dresses that gathered at the waist, and structured floral embellished coats and a sleeveless dress.
These stood out against the black backdrop, while other dresses were more muted, including dresses such as a light orange parachute style and a fitted pale pink number.
Lee kept to classic silhouettes using clean cuts and relaxed lines. Details such as ruffles, frills and buttons to the side enhanced her minimal collection.
