Latex clothing will certainly be making a splash come this Spring when Dawnamatrix participates in Seattle Fashion Week 2016. We’re planning on showcasing a very wearable collection influenced by this often rainy state we live in, where waterproof latex especially factors into the scene. Pulling out all the stops, we’ll show that in battling the weather ‘up here’ latex couture can serve one’s fashionable, as well as functional, needs.
In our world the belted knee-length classic Macintosh trenchoat (or “Mac” as they call it in the U.K…certainly the fashionista there sees lots of rain!) low heeled pointed toe boots and a body conforming dress over leggings keeps the cold and damp at bay. But one shouldn’t forget what we feel will be top trends come the New Year; florals, structure garments and bold colors. Luckily our wardrobe pieces do sport fantastically vibrant colors and deeply rendered textures, all of which we will show with the “bright and impermeable” theme we are planning for the SFW runway.
Seattle’s fashion week showcases what we have always known, but have come to see on a daily basis now living in the Pacific Northwest: there is an impressive cluster of local designers in this area of the U.S. creating unique pieces for a very discerning clientele. Yes, rain proof and warmth are big concerns picking-out and amassing a wardrobe here, but seeing that Seattle is #8 in the Top 20 US Metros for Fashion Designers, one could guess that people in Seattle have come to expect a lot more than just warmth and staying dry in what they wear.
Sipping some rich local made coffee brew enveloped in our sumptuous warm and waterproof latex clothing is just the ticket and we are as thrilled to be welcomed into this unique community, as we are to be participating next year in what will prove to be one of the fashion highlights of our career.
