Candice Wu presented yet another stunning collection this year. Her dark and edgy designs keep getting better as she develops a unique style that Boston has fallen in love with. Uptempo Magazine sponsored her fashion installation at the W Hotel, while attendees were seated in the super cool bar lounge. Models posed around different stands around the room, allowing everyone to get up close to Wu's detailed eveningwear pieces. While she isn't one to use much color, the glimmering black, white, gold, and silver fabrics she used were beautifully layered, draped, and gathered. Her signature leather showed up in structured dresses and piping details. She used sheer and lace paneling very subtly in a couple overlays and trains.
Once again, Wu partnered with jewelry brand House of Cach to compliment her designs with their avant-garde headpieces, necklaces, and bracelets. The jewelry went so perfectly with the gowns that each ensemble seemed to meld into one inseparable piece. Insects were the centers of many of the headpieces and necklaces, as well as an unusual face mask. A few pieces incorporated bones in delicate chains and thick arm cuffs, while one headpiece was a skeleton hand.
Wu is certainly on fire in the Boston fashion industry, with designs that never disappoint and an established atheistic everyone has come to know as her own. Her creations are beautifully crafted for the kind of woman who wants a dress that embodies her daring, edgy style.
