I've seen their clothes in person and I was honestly more taken with the way the embellishment was assembled. The actual body of all of those knee length hand painted dresses from F/W 08 was a pretty standard bodice shape that used traditional construction to build it. It
beautiful in that the torso portion was completely sheer and allowed you to see the construction, like darts that are completely visible, but the shape itself and the methods used to achieve it (bustline darts, darts in the waist, fisheye darts) didn't really live up to how intricate some of the decoration was. Maybe that was their intention, I don't know.
That's just what I took away from it though, and really the only things I got to see were a number of dresses from the runway and some of the knitwear (which is gorgeous in person).
You need to move fashion forward when there's a reason to move fashion forward
