vandevorst explained the autumn winter 1718 collection was about upgrading; ‘you can use whatever as long as you’re working in a couture way’. They formed the black plastic into a bodice and built it up into ruffled, tiered skirts, or else how it appeared as floral embroidery on a sweater; the execution would have been the same had the material been lacquered organza or raffia. Stephen Jones and his team imagined found objects as headpieces pants as turbans, old medals arranged as bonnets, and unwieldy bags as veils.
