THROW BACK THURSDAY: FASHION HIGHLIGHTS OF 2016

Gucci AW16 Campaign

2016 was a big year in fashion, many big names dazzled the runways with their iconic new styles. Whilst for some new and upcoming designers, 2016 created a platform for them to be heard and show off their creative minds. It seemed like the theme for last years collections was ‘go big or go home’ as the catwalks turned out to be more than just pretty clothes that were currently on trend. There were meanings and emotions to each piece created showing there can be a rebellious side to fashion.  WILDABOUT take a look into the fashion highlights of 2016 and the most iconic trends that were set.

Fashion at a risk

Molly Goddard’s AW16 shone out last year and as always her beautiful tulle dresses were the main attraction. She brought ruffles and pleats to 2016. Yet again created a unique way of bringing her collection to the runway. In her past shows Molly hasn’t stuck with the typical catwalk. Instead she sets a scene and shows off her designs in a completely different way. In previous years she held a party and made her friends wear her creations, another she set up her own live art gallery where the models wore her collection and painted in a setting that fitted her theme perfectly. She has created some outstanding collections and also brought to 2016 the new way of expressing her work. I’m sure more amazing dresses and exciting ways to showcase work are to come in the future which will be super exciting to see!

Gucci is known for it’s eccentric themes and mixing the old with the new. Who could forget the whimsical campaigns Gucci created along the way? Gucci gave a classy and feminine feel to 2016.
