Son Jung Wan set the bar high for her SS 18 runway presentation with a celebrity stacked guest list that included the likes of Kelly Rutherford, and ANTM’s Miss J Alexander. And the designer certainly did not disappoint. Wan entangled contemporary construction and romantic embroidery into a number of cocktail dresses and evening wear looks. The most alluring garment of the entire lineup was a metallic gold floral frock that featured a keyhole back, a navy tulle bow and underlay.

Although the collection didn’t seem entirely cohesive (the first two blue floral silk ensembles seemed arbitrary), Wan did prove her diversity as a designer, as she concocted a range of looks that felt entirely original. One should never underestimate the power of ingenuity in a world where everyone seems to be merely replicating one another.
