Dear Shaded Viewers,
Inspired by Polynesia and its striking nature, Roya Hesam presented a beautiful collection yesterday, focusing on fluid lines and weightless fabrics. I liked the refinement of her pieces, as well as her attention to detail. The collection also had shades of orientalism, which I liked.
I went backstage to get a closer look after the show. The fabrics were luxurious and a silk blouse stood out. It was sophisticated, but easy to wear. Roya was born in Afghanistan, but studied fashion in Amsterdam.
I caught up with David Roth from Berlin TV after the show. With his turban and animal print shirt, he wouldn't have been out of place in an orientalist painting.
