RFW opening fashion show was held in Riga Central Gastro Bar. First of all, we want to compliment on a place selection. Central Gastro Bar is a new urban street food place which is definitely worth checking out. Of course, in big fashion metropolises fashion shows in unusual places are common thing.
As a warm-up for runway shows we had a chance to participate in some events organized by the best fashion boutiques. One from our favourite was presentation of Soyka Secret Garden – boutique which represents both Latvian and Georgian design.
Soyka Secret Garden Presentation was truly like dessert for eyes. Spring blossoms with juicy colors made Balkan beauty captivating. These pieces you can definitely add to your spring ultimate look.
One of our favorite Day 3 shows was definitely Diana Arno. While in Tallinn she presented her SS19 collection, in Riga we had a chance to be the first ones to see the new AW19 collection. And again Diana has proven that she is an expert at what she does.
Diana has a sense of “right amount” by adding those small details which gives an outfit personality. She combines trendy elements like prairie style dresses with timeless pieces making a modern women’s look.
Also Iveta Vecmane presented another shade of melancholia in RFW.
Besides Iveta Vecmane always accentuate concept and her own personality in every collection. Sadness reflected in pure colours and feminine silhouettes. We also loved the combination of feminine garments and masculine details e.g. elegant cylinder hat.
Fashion week is not only about style and the way how you dress.
Besides fashion shows, RFW held other cool events – presentations and wild parties after fashion shows. One of them ”GO BOLD OR GO HOME” took place at our home in Terbatas Street. Because there is nothing better than enjoying yummy cocktails from Hennessy and having nice people around.
Besides fashion we also had a chance to enjoy culture and art vibes. Art Gallery Putti always impresses its visitors with contemporary and conceptual jewellery pieces. By the time of RFW Art Gallery Putti opened a new exhibition ESTONISHING! It was a truly inspiring interaction between contemporary art and Estonian national features like natural material usage and interesting work techniques.
At the moment society experiences a cult of femininity and sensuality.
New collection by Amoralle speaks for women and makes them feel sexual and desirable. We love femininity just as much as Amoralle does. Lace and silk are the things women can wear every day, not only on special occasions.
On Day 5 we finally had a moment for kids fashion. Our favorite was Aristrocat Kids.
Seems like every flower has its own story. When we saw this collection we fell into daydream and almost forgot why we were there. In a good way, of course. Fashion show was ravishing!
RFW Day 5 pleasantly surprised us with the new collection from Baiba Ladiga. Minimalism and Scandinavian motifs appeared both in fashion show and garments. We love the way how Baiba plays with silhouettes and mixes combinations of black and white with emerald accents.
Every collection is different and there is so much stuff going on! Nowadays simplicity stands out and helps us focusing on important matters.
The last show on Day 5 was by Katya Katya.
We saw beautiful embroidered floral motifs with a light touch of sheer fabric. And bohemian wedding looks with cotton lace made a beautiful ending of 30th Riga Fashion Week.
