Apu Jan: AW18 LFW Collection Showcase
Shortly after graduating from the Royal College of Art, Apu Jan begun showcasing his work at Fashion Week from 2013 onwards. His reputation for combining fictional themes with unique knitwear technique has made him one of the most exciting designers of the moment.
His collection this season was titled ‘Drifting in a Million Stars’ and his approach couldn’t have been more spot-on – futuristic prints on two-piece mao suits, panelled, panelled transparent and print, crop two-piece sets, mid-length knit dresses and stunning crotchet pieces.
Each model that walked out showcased a beautiful ‘East meets West’ outfit in solid shades of eclectic indigo, black, lavender and grey. If there was ever a moment the female form was truly appreciated and celebrated for its various shapes, it was definitely then!
Of course, there was a whole section dedicated to showcasing Jan’s knitwear techniques. Using cashmere, lamb wool and pure silk yarn, Jan used his signature style to produce a number of standout, original pieces - his black crotchet sleeveless top and white, knit veil-hat were both head-turners!
The show ended with a stunning, floor length silk, keyhole, dress with a delicate bow-tie – the perfect piece to round off a truly captivating showcase.
