When you used to be considered an emo/goth/scene kid of sorts and find your way into high fashion as a young adult, you tend to see that you’re still drawn to similar elements. As someone who spent the entirety of fashion week in all black and platformed boots that make me an entire head taller than I actually am, I was definitely embracing my pre-teen likes on the night that 33 poets’ designs braced the runway.
33 poets showed the beauty of grunge within high-fashion and almost made me cry for joy. Trust me I kept trying to take photos with my camera and film with my phone to capture everything, everywhere, all at once. I could already see the pieces in my wardrobe as soon as they hit the runway. The dark beauty, mixed with various coloured pieces and the occasional white offset, all held a mystical rocker quality to them (while feeling very punk, with the slight commentary on today’s society), which I completely adored.
Who knew I could fall for a designer so effortlessly?
(My teen self would awe in amazement.)
