Highlights from Fashion Forward's second season of 2013
Certainly the most memorable moment in the Fashion Forward line-up was the conclusion of Filipino designer Furne One's epic finale to his Amato show. The collection was inspired by the Harajukus in Japan. After Furne One’s visit to Japan, he decided to render this inspiration by combining a geisha and queen feel to his designs. “They exist in different worlds but they have similarities. They both have restrictions and crave freedom,” said Furne. The colours were derived from the world famous macarons of Paris’s Ladurée.
