For Fall/Winter 2020, Richard Quinn let his audience enter his ‘’fashion dreamhouse’’ – completed with a grand facade adorned with flowers from floor to ceiling.
This season, the designer’s flair for extravagance and just the right amount of eccentricity was evident throughout the collection which the designer called ‘’Dare to Dream’’, in the exaggerated shoulders and bows featured in a series of floral minidresses, the printed masks covering models’ faces and in the crystal-embellished feather headpieces.
‘’I really like sinister, dark beauty. Even if it’s a beautifully embroidered gown I want an S&M girl wearing it, but she can then also wear a softer floral dress. That can be the same woman’’, the designer mused backstage.
Characters for this imaginary house party included men in flares and embellished suits for Quinn’s first foray into men’s wear, adding to this celebration of glamour, riotous color, creativity and pure fantasy.
