Magdalena Velevska RAFW
One of the biggest surprise collections for me was Magdalena Velevska's 'Continuum'. Ultra modern, pin fine pleating in neon colours, and a gorgeous take on her heritage Macedonian embroidery. My new found love of these pieces continued with the UV light installation during the finale, where the fluorescent garments glowed. Before this show I was uneasy with neons becoming a huge trend, but now can see how beautiful, distinctive and wearable they can be when made and worn as well as Magdelena's.
