Suzaan Heyns Catwalk Report A/W 2013

The first thing that catches your eye as walking into the venue for the Suzaan Heyns A/W 2013 Joburg Fashion Week show, is the corridors spread all over the ramp. This contributing to the A/W 2013 collection of Suzaan Heyns called Doors of Perception.

For the A/W 2013 collection, Suzaan drew inspiration from doors and labyrinth alleyways. Throughout the styling of the models however, you can sense a look and feel from the Arabic culture as the models’ hair were draped around their faces and necks as scarfs.

A special soundtrack was also created for this show in particular, by Audio Militia and you found the models being guided through a “seemingly ever-deepening maze filled with mystery and the unknown”, as described on the flyer.

For the collection itself, light and filthy pantones were used to design this collection. Colours like washed out hues of Regatta blue, Beeswax yellow, Peony and Russet, Peapod green, Milk White and Browns were the main focus in most garments. The style of the collection was mostly male inspired as there were a lot of suits and blazers evident on the runway. Most outfits had a formal work clothing atmosphere as high waisted skirts with tucked-in shirts also featured in this collection.

Unfortunately, the show itself never wound up to a “wow factor” garment and there were no surprises nor drama in the collection. This made it a bit disappointing to watch and left the audience without awe, making this collection forgettable.
