Jasper Garvida

Towering heels, lavish sequin embellishments and geometric cuts – Jasper’s AW10 screamed Art Deco and vintage Hollywood. Contrary to last season’s multicoloured, multi-textured and what I personally thought was a rather confused theme, this season’s golden thread through the collection was more than apparent. The show started with tipped-bowler hats and a flirtatious atmosphere by half-prancing models; gold zippers on forest greens evolved to scales of sequins and a more romantic colour palette. Jasper’s love for sequins was epitomized by the last dress, where champagne-coloured fabric squares were applied like sequins, an excellent finale to the collection.

I’m finding myself in a rather unique situation here with Jasper Garvida! For the past 3 seasons I’ve been so kindly invited by Forever Better of Miele for various events around Jasper, some of you may remember the Fashion Weekend collaboration, ON|OFF presentation from 2009. I feel that I’ve unintentionally been given a position where I can closely witness the growth of a designer from the beginning of his career, which I’m truly thankful for. Thank you Miele for the invitation, the wondrous front-row seats, and a great time with new and familiar blogger faces!

  8. First picture is like art. Last dress is a dream.

  9. I started off and was like, hmmm maybe something a bit circus-y? Then as I scrolled down I went, no art deco, no 70′s knit, no classic with a twist. Its not partifcularily cohesive but each garment is wonderful in it’s own right.

  10. this is so lovely! I adore it. I adore all your LFW posts! Keep em coming, girl!

  11. That’s a badass jacket
