Abstract / Summary

Article on the Spring/Summer 2018 Fashion Design collections looking in particular at the range of sheer fabrics being utilised. Focus is given to the work of Missoni, Fendi, Simone Rocha, Christopher Kane, Preen (Thornton Bregazzi and Justin Thornton), and Chanel. For Spring/Summer 2018 ready-to-wear fashion there is one highly apparent trend and that is the sheer, the transparent, the translucent with no opacity visible (scarcely). Ultra-feminine materials - lace, chiffon, organza and tulle are chosen but also functional plastic provides protection from showers that can occur anytime during a British summer. Lyrical and abundantly romantic the collections for Spring/Summer 2018 evoke the poignantly sweet impermanence and transcience of this season - fleeting moments of time that we all wish to grasp on to for longer.
