ARISE L’Afrique-À-Porter: Clive Rundle
Clive Rundle’s designs were characterized by excess fabrics, layers of tulle and crystals, all compressed together. It was artistic expression unveiled, reminiscent of a Yinka Shonibare art installation; an order for the free flow of thoughts established, with uninhibited territories allowing us to recognise and embrace the chaos of the avant-garde nature of his elaborate pieces.
The creativeness and innovation put into this showcase is highly commendable; however I would have preferred to see wearable pieces from him to have a broader sense of the label. The pieces are undoubtedly artistically intriguing, and is best described as art in motion.
