SEEN at the catwalk for LFW16: Gareth Pugh SS17

Gareth Pugh presented his new SS17 stunning collection inspired by the golden and decadent era of Imperial Rome in a car park in Soho, used as a venue for London Fashion Week on 17th September.

Models wearing amazing headpieces and structured body armour with makeup by legendary artist Val Garland stunned the public on day 2 of the LFW at the BFC Show Space.

This collection is based on costumes he created for the opera ‘Eliogabalo’, on show at the Palais Garnier in Paris. This sun-themed opera was written for the Venice Carnival in the 17th century, and captures the royal life of decadent Imperial Rome, using golden triangles and black stripes to depict rays of light.

Gareth Pugh is an English-born fashion designer who has received global recognition for his approach to redefining modern luxury. Educated at London’s Central Saint Martins, Pugh’s clothes have been described as wearable sculptures – experimental forms, volumes and fabrics are all signature to his aesthetic. He has worked with some of the most popular artists of our time, including Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna, and with some of the world’s most important cultural institutions.
