SFW Day2 LR-2710It was an important night for Elohim’s Sabrina Goh and Dzojchen’s Chelsea Scott-Blackhall. As new inductees into Fashion Futures 2015, a ‘strategic alliance’ that allows them access to the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s resources, all eyes were on them to deliver. And they did.

ELOHIM BY SABRINA GOH

SFW Day2 LR-2108A sense of rigour and strength was present in the structured sweatshirts and pleated skirts produced by Goh. Fashioned from what seemed like neoprene or bonded jersey, a heavy fold imbued a strap dress with strict and dark undertones. Sombre shades of concrete made way for splashes of red on an abstract print inspired by China’s famous Danxia landscape. Google it–the naturally-occurring colours on the rock formation will take your breath away. Admittedly, Goh’s interpretation of Nature’s wonders felt underwhelming.

At Dzojchen, Blackhall stuck to what she does best: Exploring dichotomies. It was a case of masculine-feminine for the designer, who struck a fine balance by juxtaposing the softness in silk blouses and louche button dresses with the hardness of tough-as-nails biker jackets.
