Dresses from Willim Tang A/W08 collection
William Tang has been designing both mens and womenswear since the early 80s, starting his own label in 85. He also designed the uniforms for Dragonair airlines in 2000, and has his own Parisian boutique; Presence II. Tang believes that "fashion itself is an art form that moves and lives with the human body. The fashion business is also art, a form that is based on creative ideas where various commercial aspects are taken into consideration" Tang is known as the 'bad boy' of Hong Kong fashion and in 1997 was surrounded in contraversy following his drug themed show. (That was just for you if you're a fashion nerd that, like me, need to know all the facts and figures!) However there is no sniff of contraversy surrounding his latest collection which, whilst perhaps not being entirely innovative, is obviously beautiful and so ethereal it almost demands to be touched.Tangs collection for A/w08 was very feminine and dress heavy, focusing on volume, especially on the hips and lower body. All of the dresses were structured to create the illusion of womanly curves and the focus was clearly on the tailoring.
