Namalia S/S 18


I say this wholeheartedly and with deep consideration, but I truly believe that Namalia could be the next John Galliano. As a provocative remix of Disney’s anthem blared from floor to ceiling speakers, a model strutted down the runway and gracefully posed every few steps in an S&M rendition of a Disney princess. Then emerged a look which involved a fabricated melon sized bra that donned pearl bejeweled nipples.

The genius procession continued with a number of ensembles that incorporated risqué cutouts, bejeweled thong straps, and appliqué detailing which clearly resembled vaginas. What made this show extraordinarily brilliant was the dialogue that the collective looks spoke. Namilia crafted a collection that spewed volumes on female empowerment and the unity of femininity and sexuality.
