BFW: Joy Williams Latex Design

Friday 03 June 2011

Hybrid Walkway

Perhaps one of the strongest collections of the evening, Joy Williams transformed latex out of the realms of just pure sex. Showcasing true talent, latex was entirely used to construct garments of sheer beauty.

With a pallet of silver, gold, black and burnt orange, latex was laser cut to form lace, embossed with pattern and quilted to form beautiful cropped jackets.  Dresses were appliqued with latex flowers and draped to a pointed well-structured silhouette that turned the models into strong, powerful women.

The entire collection was a mass blur of the amazement of what one designer can do with a fabric that has been reduced to a ‘type cast’ usage.
