REVIEW: ALEXANDER WANG FALL WINTER 2018

Posted on by Cameron Tewson

Staged in a former Condé Nast office of 4 Times Square, filled with corporate cubicle walls, Alexander Wang‘s autumn winter 2018 fashion show venue promised a lot. Female empowerment! Strong, business dressing? But did the designer deliver anything worthwhile? With a sea of black walking the runway and nothing but Matrix vibes – I personally would call it a waste of time going to Midtown, if I am honest.

Really Alex? Would anyone wear any of those Iris Van Herpen style cut-out clothing? It’s a hard one to imagine. Sexy isn’t bad but that’s the only thing the show was delivering. From bad (think #wangfest) to worse. You’ll probably read nothing but great reviews on the collection only because Wang has advertising budget and everyone wants a slice. Also, Mugler, Saint Laurent and Tom Ford for Gucci called and they would like their silhouettes back.

When will the Wang girl ever grow up? She has a blossoming potential Fingers crossed that the trip to Paris next season will be slightly more successful for the designer. Surprise us? Surprise me.
