A devotee of architectural and sculptural forms, David Koma found a new sensuality in this beautifully tailored collection inspired by the shape and grooves of vinyl records.

He worked ridged, quilted leather or neoprene into gently sculpted skirts and dresses, transposing the shapes into voluptuous collars and undulating hems, bringing to mind both the Space Age Sixties and sexy, body-conscious Eighties.

Koma also worked his ridged fabrics onto evening and cocktail dresses, too — some of which had sheer panels. At the end of the show, he transformed those ridges into rounded geometric appliques cut and pasted onto organza dresses.
