These pictures from Welsh designer Julien Macdonald's Fall 2014 Ready To Wear collection left me utterly speechless. I think my dreams of being a champion figure skater and flapper girl became a reality on the runway.
The beading and embellishments are spectacular yet not overwhelming when paired with light fabric. As a result, both model and garment work as a collective unit. While very skin-barring, Macdonald's pieces transcend risqué notions based on their very nature; the heavy embellishments and striking designs verge on art pieces rather than garments.
For a man who originally gained notoriety for his knit-wear in the early 2000s, his talent is multifaceted and unwavering. It is no wonder he is known as the "Welsh Donatella Versace".
