Lako Bukia AW10

Lako Bukia AW09When it comes to black and white, there are so many different ways that I love to wear this classic combination. I am always on the lookout for new interesting ideas. That is why I sat up and took notice when I saw the AW10 collection from Lako Bukia, London based Georgian designer and graduate of A. Kutateladze Tbilisi State Academy of Art. Lako gained recognition for her first collection 'mushroom' which was a soft and sensual collection in velvets, silks and handmade fabrics. The collections was shown at the Ukranian Fashion week and exhibited at Central St Martins She was also selected to take part in Kiev Fashion Week of Young Designers in May this year.

Lako is now studying for her second BA this time at London College of Fashion and has produced a collection for AW10. This collection is a stark contrast to her first collection with much stronger lines and angular shapes and of course the bold and striking combination of black and white. The use of zips to open pieces of clothing into something new and create different effects was both innovative but wearable. The collection is called Emotions and explores the divide between good and bad. It uses a range fabrics and textures to create the different features of each piece, including wools for the sharper forms and accents of silks to soften the shapes.

so, she can sew in some zippers. there is nothing new about it. and she can match black with white. not revolutionary either. i wish her luck but i don't think she will make it.

I wish I could do my lipstick like that and not look like a geisha! It's hard to find events to go to that allow extreme make up!
