Hollywood designer Rocky Gathercole ended the finale of Art Hearts Fashion Week with big bang!
The Filipino designer renowned for his outrageous, avant garde designs dazzled the audience with his Fall/Winter 2016 collection of a golden mirage of fantasy pieces inspired by Greek and Roman mythology.
Models strutted down the runway in a glamorous array of works of art, from larger than life headpieces in the shape of golden Aries horns, Minnie Mouse ears to glittery cage corset dresses and outlandish bustiers embellished with dragons, cobras and firebirds.
He also designed some sexy intricately beaded bodysuits with gold fringes that moved with mesmerising perfection as the models sashayed down the runway. His stunning dresses also had full tiered skirts and elaborate metallic bustier decorations.
The men looked like fierce Roman gladiators, with laurels on their heads and golden chains hanging on their buff bodies. One of them wore a huge shoulder shield and a golden deer skull over his black shorts.
The finale dress was a showstopper, a full length costume of a beautiful lace gown and an extravagant golden Phoenix headpiece complete with wings.
I have never been so amazed by a fashion show, every outfit was so extraordinary, exquisitely crafted and larger than life. They look like they belong to a fantasy Hollywood movie about Gods and warriors. You have to see the outfits to believe it. I’m so blessed to have witnessed a visual reverie of legends come to life.
Thank you Art Hearts Fashion Week for another stunning finale!
