Raffaele Ascione SS13 Catwalk Show
Raffaele Ascione reinvents luxe fabrics with neon and sequin detailing. The Central Saint Martin’s graduate takes inspiration from Fruit of the Loom sweatshirts developing his graduate work for this Spring/Summer 2013 collection that attracted an excited crowd.
Hip-Hop and R&B fills the room as the first model opens the show with a mood of pure attitude and energy that embodies the collection. A-line silhouettes and detailing challenges feminine norms and breaks the mould of what is expected. Street meets regal in dishevelled quilted fabrics and bursts of colour creating a new type of woman and a look that is full of attitude. Customised hooped earrings and platform shoes show the creativity that Raffaele has when bringing together luxury and street style. Raffaele brings his own flair to this collection, decorating each piece with a bright signature style that doesn’t go missed. Inspired by his closest friends, the looks focus on statement accessories that represent strong professional women in his life.
