Despite the chaos of my final school year, I made a point of clearing my schedule to see the Edeline Lee presentation this fashion week. I’ve seen Lee’s shows for the last couple of seasons, and they always seem to stand out. This occasion was no exception.
Inspired by the life and work of Georgia O’Keef, the collection was a perfect example of art influencing fashion. The clothes lived out Lee’s running narrative of strong and expressive women, with a heartfelt femininity in each garment. The bold silhouettes were reminiscent of O’Keef’s signature voluptuous shapes and the colour palette that of New Mexico, where O’Keef produced some of her finest work. There was delicate stitching, audacious sleeves and turquoise accents – all of which created a wonderful collection.
