They say that Avante-Garde fashion is impractical but practicality is not really the goal of creating these experimental designs. They're art, a symbol of fashion innovation and progress. Their aim is to explore existing ideas and ignite new ones.
With that said, let's take a moment to appreciate these outrageous fashion-forward fashion week runway looks.
Moschino's Flower Girls (Spring 2018, Milan Fashion Week)
Miranda Priestly will finally agree that florals for spring are groundbreaking once she sees these human bouquets. The whole look is over-the-top for the streets but those flowers peeping out of the boots can be wearable if toned down a notch. Don't you think?
Vivienne Westwood's Fab Designs (S/S '18, Paris Fashion Week)
Vivienne Westwood's designs are nothing if not groundbreaking and fabulous. We mean, you can't expect less from a designer who hired acrobats and staged a grand circus-like runway show.
The fashion label's latest show featured designs by her husband and former fashion student, Andreas Kronthaler; all of which are very flamboyant and unconventional, to say the least.
Molly Goddard's Trademark Tulle (S/S '18, London Fashion Week)
Goddard is known for her whimsical, romantic designs usually made with tulle — her signature fabric. We've seen some really wearable and gorgeous designs from her line. But would you dare to take it to the next level and rock this unique tiered tulle dress?
Junya Watanabe's Pattern (S/S '18, Paris Fashion Week)
Junya Watanabe, like his former boss Rei Kawakubo, has a distinct fashion-forward style that's apparent in every collection. And his designs for S/S '18 during Paris Fashion Week are no exception. Admittedly, with a little fitting alteration and a classy belt, we'd love to wear this edgy design in everyday life.
Marc Jacobs' Colour Play (S/S '18, New York Fashion Week)
Marc Jacobs did not use any background music for his S/S '18 fashion show during NYFW. And with eye-catching ensembles in the collection, it can certainly do without it. The outfits speak for themselves through their loud colours and eccentric designs. Just with this look alone, there's so much that's happening — the turban, fanny pack, and those shoes.
