KTZ S/S 12
As I said in my previous post, the KTZ was the most anticiapated of the shows on my list and by far the best. After Josh and I took our seats on the front row and the catwalk began, it was a whirlwind from the start. The Chemical Brothers - It Began In Afrika, boomed out from the speakers as the first model appeared as a silhouette under the lightning in the BFC showspace.
The collection was unreal! Coined as 'Massai Punk' it was an ecclectic mix of leather, bondage, print and cut-out shoes to rival Balenciaga and Versace's attempts. The models stormed down the runway to the beat of the heavy bass tunes with attitude that could have stabbed someone. The perfectly stacked Massai jewellery combined with the leather harnesses and shows made a great combination that ccan be easily trasnferred to everyday life. The male models wore leather pleated skirts and knee-length shorts with cut-out boots. The women wore printed mini dresses and sky-high heels, with one look completely stealing the show. One of the models; a striking black girl came onto the catwalk wearing very little (see photo 5) in the way of leather bondage, with just a sheer cape, heels and sunglasses to accompany it.
The show ended all too quickly and the models came out for their last run and to a massive applause. Once the models had returned and the lights went up, it was a flurry of talking about what had just been witnessed and we met some dear friends with whom we worked with at Forward PR.
Post-show dinner was provided by Nandos near Victoria Station, where we talked about the day's amazing events and how we could wait for LFW in February. The whole week was a crazy, amazing experience that I never thought i'd achieve, and I can't wait to repeat it all again!
