Taoray Wang Spring / Summer 2018 is inspired by two Baroque musicians - Purcell and Handel presented at the Shanghai Symphony Hall. With the scenery changing from modern Shanghai to the royal palace in London, Wang Tao merges the exquisite Baroque costume into her contemporary designs.
The palette includes white, black, grey and pinstripes. I especially love use of fringe on the sleeves, back of the blazers, and at the skirt hem for a playful, modern look to suiting. There was also the dramatic belting at the waist and zip detail on the sleeves.
