Ever on the mark with his edgy styles, the collection delivered and surpassed all expectations. Although the whole collection was monochromatic, it’s easy to see why black and white was such a popular combination. With the careful combination of delicate textiles, colors need not exist in order to showcase the details of Sid Neigum’s designs. A lot of his heavily textured pieces were intricately made from over 1,000 pieces of hand-cut fabric which were then carefully sewn together by the designer himself. If that doesn’t demonstrate passion and persistence than we don’t know what will.
The diaphanous layers of fabric had a dreamy and luxurious feel, while bold cuts and silhouettes juxtaposed against the delicate choice of textiles. It was easy to discern the Japanesque, origami inspiration behind his collection. The handiwork behind his collection sets the collection apart against others showing that night and it was easy to see why he won the Mercedes-Benz Start Up Award of $30, 000.
Besides just winning the Mercedes-Benz Start Up, Sid Neigum also won the Minnie Mouse Presentation. The six finalists had to design a look inspired by Disney’s fashion darling, Minnie Mouse. Sid Neigum’s Minnie Mouse design fell in unison with his overall aesthetic wherein the patchwork dress he created utilized a silhouete of Mini Mouse’s head as opposed to the origami folds in his own collection.
We were left lusting for his designs and wanted to add them to our closet by the end of his show. And Sid Neigum being so young yet so talently gifted has us setting him up on a pedestal against all of the other designers who were to show that night. He definitely set the standard and if that was what to be expected for the rest of the week, we were thoroughly impressed.
