Fashion Designer Dario Mohr Spring/Summer 2015
Fashion Gallery’s Menswear Collective for Spring/Summer showcased six emerging designers.
Editors and buyers had a chance to view six unique runway shows in one.
Blac Ivy’s dark street wear showcased elongated tees, lightweight bombers, and both muted and dark tones for an uncharacteristically chilly Spring/Summer 2015. Giofre built upon this theme emphasizing looks rooted in black that played with both loose-fitting and slim silhouettes. Noxiuz was the most vibrant collection of the bunch heavily emphasizing bold graphic prints on tees, pants, and socks.
Christian Bernard paid homage to Native American culture with in graphic print wovens, Daft Minerva and Figgie Shoes previewed a futuristic Spring/Summer 2015 with geometric prints and sheer leggings. Apollonius closed out the show with oversized black and white contrast looks reminiscent of Alexander Wang.
