Artistic gothic-inspired styles and avant-garde detailing were on full display for the theatrical Videmus Omnia Fall 2019 runway show, titled “Enigma,” this February season of New York Fashion Week. The haute couture luxury show, produced by Nolcha Shows, is designer Yun Qu‘s third collection presentation.
For the season, the garments combined the “art aesthetics of 14th-16th centuries’ renaissance, 19th century impressionism, and mid-1980s grunge music,” according to the brand. This captivating mix of art styles resulted in a line full of eerily dark, yet completely vibrant, creations.
Each colorful, printed, and brilliantly-proportioned look was emphasize by platinum blonde braids and paint stroke-like smokey eye makeup – crafted by the talented AOFM and Ecru New York teams.
“Avant-Garde is re-built when a reverent revival of classical art forms collides with the nihilistic, angst-filled lyrics reflecting the ideas of freedom and of breaking the rule,” the brand shared on its social media. “Inspired by impressionism art of open composition and emphasis on depiction of light in its changing qualities, Enigma will be unveiled. In this collection, the designer captures a fresh and original vision by recreating the sensation in the eye that views the future of fashion.”
