The Walter Van Beirendonck Spring/Summer 2012 collection showed the designer's prowess at standing out from the cloud -- I mean, crowd. His dreamy tufted, fluffy and colorful creations definitely achieved the "wow" effect at Paris Fashion Week, as they were presented by models completely covered by clouds, bushes and featherlike marshmallows.
There were even more avant-garde accessories added to the Walter Van Beirendonck Spring/Summer 2012 collection, including shredded tops, pajamas print patterns, pastel face paint and bizarre hair accessories. Van Beirendonck’s cloudlike runway presentation seems like a very strange dream with creations that are definitely very difficult to wear in real life.
Implications - Fashion designers are continually pushing the proverbial envelope when it comes to inspiring emotion with their creative works. This designer's avant-garde runway presentation took cues from Mother Nature, incorporating elements of clouds, grass and other organic structures.
