MUSE: FAST Delivers a Stellar Show

Fashion and Student Trends presented their Fall 2009 show title “MUSE: You Art What You Wear” last Sunday night in Pauley Ballroom on the Berkeley campus. The show included collections from twenty two designers, each showing between three to five pieces. Divided into three segments, designs varied extensively, and there was something fresh and interesting in each designer’s collection.

The show kicked off with designs by Leslie Hamachi and Kayee So who designed a collection inspired by discarded items. A standout piece in their collection was a little black dress with a bodice constructed out of gold paper clips.

Though all the designers did a phenomenal job, the stand out collection came from Helen Hyon. Everything was just right. I was most impressed with the styling of her models. The collection, entitled “Bleached Sea Turtles” was inspired by Ruben Toledo’s fashion illustrations. The collection had a breath of fresh air due to the incorporation of different textures of fabric. The clothes were body conscious and were well finished. One of my favorite things about it was the color pallet, which included neutrals as well as different shades of blue.

All the designers in the FAST Fashion show did an excellent job. I was very impressed with the level of work the garments exhibited. The FAST Staff, designers, and models, as well as anyone involved in the organization of the show should be very proud. I can’t wait for the show in the Spring!
