COLLECTION| Ones To Watch: Heohwan Simulation AW12

Heohwan Simultion kicked off the Ones to Watch show with an utterly modern collection that had the crowd wowed from the start. Oversized coats and masculine tailored jackets were paired with feminine drainpipe trousers and pencil skirts, an almost unsurprising feature from a designer who studied menswear at the RCA. The black, orange and cobalt blue colour palette really made this collection pop and the crowd, who included Susie Lau and Kate Nash, lapped up the zip-through backs, extended shoulders and leather panelling. Plastic geometric shapes dangled from dresses for a funky touch in this collection perfect for city-slickers. After the show, the designer, Hwan Heo, still buzzing on adrenaline, exclaimed: “Thank you for having me!”
