Toga // Spring 2015 //

I was so excited to attend the Toga presentation during London Fashion Week. The label first came on radar last season when they presented on-schedule for the first time. The presentation was held at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel this season.

On paper the collection is absolutely bonkers. In person it paid off. I looked at the clothes as separates rather than whole outfits, which for more conservative folk is advised. Yasuko Furuta designs for complex women who live in chaos. This MO is emulated into the clothing perfectly.

I found the mixture of materials rather captivating. Tulle and plastic were fused together to form beautiful clothes. Reflective motifs were added to looks for extra flair. Look 22 was a hand painted mini dress with an outward flutter. Tulle trousers and a collar made the ensemble look like a one-piece. Patchwork was evident in the collection, a trend to have emerged from fashion month.
