Maison the Faux SS17 Presentation NYFW

Upon receiving the digital invitation for “CHUBBY CHASER”, a plethora of boobs dancing around happily, I knew that the Maison the Faux presentation would be one to watch.

Being a self-proclaimed ‘creative studio posing as a grand couture fashion house’, this presentation was anything but a illusion of individuality. This was the real thing. A mesmerising performance involved an army of exquisitely draped soldiers guarding their Queen, whose identity was not revealed until the final model left the room. It was well worth the anticipation, with the ethereal beauty Jezra M acting as a mirage, hypnotising the audience with her powerful gaze – which silently screamed ‘I AM GODDESS’.

THE CLOTHES

An array of deconstructed heavily layered pieces, distressed and torn denim contrasted with corsetry and tailored silhouettes. If you needed to dress a clique of alternative glam rock superstars, this would be your go-to label.

THE MODELS

Diversity was key, with models of all walks of life being celebrated. Jezra M was the poster girl for body positivity, sitting on a elevated throne with a bowl of sacred fruits. Was she the modern day Eve, tempting humankind to stray from their outdated preconceived notions of beauty? With the fashion industry being notorious for its ludicrous weight expectations of models, perhaps “CHUBBY CHASER” was making a social commentary on the need for greater inclusion, awareness and love.

  1. Dear Sara,
    I just love and look forward to reading your interpretations of the unique & somewhat enigmatic upcoming fashion houses. When I look at one or two photos in isolation I didn’t really know how I feel about them, that is, until my every sense is awakened by the touch of your fine pen.
    You are truly a gifted writer and this editorial prepares the reader for an adventurous ride of creative wardrobe wear into the world and on the stage of Maison the Faux.
    Exhilarating!

    Love & Hugs
