Sunday’s lineup kicks off with the scandalous, hyper-sexualized designs of Haus of Zuk (BC) which contrasts against Blossom Sunday’s (France) romantic and whimsical collection. C'EST D’s (US) playful and size-inclusive lineup, Carmen Llaguno’s (Mexico) spiritually inspired pieces and Arlo’s luxury Australian womenswear will celebrate the many facets of stylish femininity. Jessica Chang Studio’s (US) hand-dyed designs will proceed BC local Alex S.
