Get Hoodie! Ika Butoni's designs, always richly textile-based, featured some amazing hoods at the 2008 Hong Kong Fall / Winter fashion show.

The Indonesian-born, Hong Kong-based designer showed a stunning collection of elaborate gowns featuring unexpected hoods, as shown in the gallery.

Implications - Hoods are a fun, whimsical and yet practical addition to any ensemble. Designers, in putting hoods on their gowns, are attempting to redefine and reinvent a look so that it will be less restrictive and meet the demands of today's more casual consumer. Thus, it's not surprising that hoods, casual fabrics and other laid-back elements will be changing the traditional definition of formal wear from here on.
