These are the trends that will make their way onto the runway at Dystopia. The styling encapsulates 90’s grunge and tough elegance. It is a style that can be incorporated into any women’s wardrobes.
Trend 1) Grunge-ify- For the Dystopia fashion show some of the looks have taken inspiration from 90’s grunge. They incorporate plaids, vintage graphic tees and even the occasional antique choker.
Trend 2) Don’t Care Kind Of Hair- Nothing says grunge like messy, teased hair. Start off with messy curls. Then grab a small section and push the hair upwards towards the face. A careless style like this is an easy way to create an edgy and tough look.
Trend 3) Dark and Darker- The fashions on the runway will be in a monochromatic dark colour palette. This creates a very elegant and sophisticated look. Mixing navys and blacks as well as layering different textures in the same colour can create depth.
Trend 4) Hardware- Chunky jewelry is a must for this kind of show. To accessorize the outfits we have used bold and chunky jewellery, usually in silver, and to play up the industrial aspect of the show there is jewellery that incorporates mechanical pieces and plexi-glass. Statement necklaces resembling hardware accomplishes the warrior look of Dystopia.
DYSTOPIA the fashion show happens June 16th, 2014 at Performance Works on Granville Island, doors: 6:30pm, show: 7:00pm. Tickets are available at JCI (220 Cambie) for $20 or $25 at the door. All net proceeds go to Covenant House.
