Aztec and edgy is what comes to mind when I rewind back to the IXIAH showcase at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week this year.
This is one of the shows that I was really looking forward to, as I can be guaranteed to come across a few new stand out unique pieces to add to my wish list and write about! So when designer Krystel Davis sent her SS 15/16 collection down the runway I was not surprised when a tasseled beaded piece caught my attention and became one of my new must-have’s. The designer sure does have the world at her fingertips and continues to create stand out pieces like that one!
The show began with beautiful live singing and then the pieces began to flow out one by one. While standing by what she is known and loved for so very much, the designer sent out tribal/Aztec printed pieces, as well as heavily beaded and fringed eye catching treasures. The pieces were stylish and edgy with many silk and tie dyed fabrics, giving off a real modernised Mayan meets fashion bohemian feel. Effortlessly attractive in neutrals and pastel shades. Flowy sheer gowns with thigh high splits and cut-out’s were also a hit, which were paired with metallic detailed heels and beaded or metallic accessories. The collection encompassed pieces that you would seek in your overseas travels to bring home and stand out from the crowd. Definitely guaranteed to turn a head or two!
Overall loved the show and the dramatic atmosphere! Again IXIAH created a lovely collection bound to sell like hot cakes.
