20 Years of Fashion with Splash – Forever More!

Splash celebrates a fashion voyage of 20 years!
It has been 20 years since Splash started its journey on Fashion Boulevard, and has been growing bigger with every season. To commemorate this achievement and celebrate the completion of two decades, Splash hosted a fashion show, titled ‘Forever More’, at the scenic Madinat Jumeirah last weekend.

To cater to their diversified audience, three shows were organized on the same say. The first one was for fashion enthusiasts below the age of 21. Second show was attended by press, fashion bloggers and such. The last show, which was followed by an after party, was hosted for UAE’s crème de la crème.

Splash’s latest collection, showcased at the event, is heavily inspired by romance, folklore, varsity and winter sports, and was presented amidst sophisticated and poetic aura. Simplicity was the key as 45 models sashayed down the runway in strong silhouettes and sleek tailoring, highlighting the looks in dark shades of black, red, gold, royal blue, purple and emerald bringing in the much needed warmth for the season.  There was an interesting mix of dramatic atmosphere and masculine style, unique hero pieces like the tuxedo, sequin dress, a short evening jacket, leather pants or a leather jacket were showcased in luxurious fabrics like wool, silk, leather or velvet. Taking inspiration from the era of decadence and extravagance pieces like military inspired jackets, lace gowns and dresses and punk inspired youthful tartan checks were also seen on the runway. Also, gold embellishments, military detailing, sheer layering along with leather trims were integral highlights adding edginess to the looks.

In the next post, I will share the collection, and the trends and pieces of collection I loved. Stay tuned fashionistas!
(P.S. A special thanks to Udita Singh for accomodating my eleventh hour request and extending access to the consumer show. Much love!)
