At Fitzroy's Laundry Bar last Friday night, SHIO Designs celebrated the debut of its latest AW15 collection in a VISUAL RUNWAY, as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival's Cultural Program. The event was accompanied by a host of gust DJs including Yo! Mafia, Mexé and Diamanté, as well as a compilation of '90s bangers.
Best known for its unique mix of eccentric Japanese culture and '90s style hip hop trends, SHIO Designs boasts a print on print on print collection this year. The range is all about pushing limits, with a variety of full length lycra dresses, Japanese style kimonos and printed leggings.
SHIO designs are much more than just surface deep. They emphasise a whole culture that comes with it, and aims to capture the 'feel' within society that is new and unique. Can you keep up?
