Suddenly I found myself standing in a church close to High Street Kensington. A few minutes left and the Baota London SS17 show was about to begin. ¬†The press hasn’t arrived yet. I looked at the room, the beautiful white ceiling and brown¬†bank rows that had blue goodie bags sitting on them.

In an interview earlier this month, Bao explained what his inspiration was behind his newest achievement. Today I saw Haute Couture coming to life, in colour and shape. Kanye’s tracks were playing, while everyone was waiting for the backstage doors to open. Suddenly a woman went up to the lectern, with a mic in her hand and started to sing. I was surprised. I haven’t expected someone to perform live in a church.

The first model made her debut, wearing a half-dress with golden splashes on it. Her breast was covered with black feathers and her nipples hidden under golden buttons. My camera was too slow and I figured out that I’ve chosen a worse place to sit.

Next up was a black negligee¬†and a blue satin coat worn on top. It was the answer to the designer’s vision of sensual and gladiatorial chic. The call to female empowerment was seen through a range of strong colours throughout the collection. Besides blue, dresses and jumpsuits appeared in red, black, nudes and gold. The hand-printed golden butterfly was a signature motif this season, gracing trains and magnificent gowns. The final look of the night featured a golden Harness, that was tightened up around the model’s breast. Functioning like a corset, it seemed to push the model’s posture significantly, to a more dignified stance. Makeup and hair were strong and vivid and underlined the powerful walk of the models.

The final look of the night featured a golden Harnish, that was tightened up around the model’s breast. Functioning like a corset, it seemed to push the model’s posture significantly, to a more dignified stance. Makeup and hair were well played and underlined the powerful walk of the models. The Baota London show closed and we got a last glance at the dresses. It was a different fashion show experience for me, especially as it was my first Haute Couture show. Thanks to Baota London’s experience it won’t be my last.
