After weeks of distraction, I have finally gotten around to uploading some of my favourite pieces from VAWK's Insectia S/S 2012 collection. Sunny Fong did a fabulous job at conveying his "Insectia" theme throughout the show as the designs consisting of cocoons of gold did evolve through the show to finally unleash a beautiful butterfly by the show's closing. The gold-plated leaf pieces that was adorned on most of the garments added a nice touch and I was especially pleased with the cuts and construction of the suits, which added a "sexy" element. Overall, it was an amazing show that was beyond what I expected - I would buy all the pieces in a heartbeat if I had the money!
