This group show brought together the work of 12 designers from Taiwan, with each label presenting three looks. Women’s wear standouts included Austin.W’s embroidered minidress with slit sleeves, Yungchin Chang’s long black dress in allover delicate beadwork and If&n’s asymmetric crimson shirtdress.
As for the men’s highlights, Mischief’s gray wool coat looked cool with forest green lapels and sporty blue sleeves, while Just in Case produced some of the most inventive pieces. A red nylon bomber jacket, for instance, was hand-stitched with more than 1,000 traditional Chinese buttons; a cable-knit sweater and black leather skorts was accessorized with a large plush snake. Not to be outdone in the dramatic department, Vivacita sent out looks bedecked with top hats, neck braces and light-up eyewear.
