Bubble N' Squeak - Reem Alasadi-Fall 2009 RTW

Reem Alasadi was born in Iraq and grew up in London. She actively participates in fashion events throughout the world. She started her own vintage remake shop in 2003 and has been presenting collections in Laforet Harajuku since 2005. She also shows collections at London Fashion Week. You can visit her website by clicking here.

A Gothic Renaissance show, this was truly the "dramatic spectacle" that the designer intended. There were white, fringed, layered and tiered dresses, big silver jewels, black leggings and black eyes, feathers and sequins, leather and lace and lips in every color. Puffed sleeves and high necked blouses became modern when combined with long, layered, casually wrinkled skirts. A fitted black jump suit with a pink sequined top underneath, was a standout as was the pink knitted jump suit with hood and cape. Oranges, blues, browns, reds, pinks, and purples warmed up a dark, cold space. Long, fringed vests and short, black fitted jackets with silver studs were versatile and wearable right into Spring.

*Although the invitation to this fabulous event included the address and maps were available, the entrance needed to be clearly flagged. A blow up of the invitation and Tokyo Fashion Week banners would really help. Many of the maps for Tokyo Fashion Week were only in Japanese. It might help to have them translated into English as well for International buyers and visitors.

There was a lot of layering but somehow
it all fit together. These pieces are interesting
and different than anything we have seen this week!
