Giant balloon dresses hit the runway in fashion show
A burgeoning designer’s career just blew up.
With notable alumni that include Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Phoebe Philo, the Central Saint Martins’ annual BA fashion show is one to watch — and that was proved again Thursday, when this year’s closing designer looks came down the runway.
Norwegian designer Fredrik Tjaerandsen translated his experience from working at Balenciaga to Louis Vuitton into show-stopping closing numbers. Models appeared on the runway with — or even in — giant balloons. After slowly deflating them, they transformed into rubber dresses.
He won over the crowd and needless to say, earned the L’Oréal Professionnel Young Talent Award. Social media went aflutter as well, with posts and re-posts of the looks garnering praise and like after like.
