Ray J opened the show by performing his brand-new song “How Did I Know,” dedicated to his gorgeous wife, Princess Love sitting in the front row. The first looks to strut the catwalk were stark white with circular hip cutouts framed by Swarovski crystals, a motif we could see on Princess herself.
As top hip hop beats flooded the room, guests were taken on a journey of gorgeous gowns and jumpsuits in rich greys and eggplant hues.
To break up the eveningwear pieces, Galtiscopio showed a capsule collection of graphic t-shirts with phrases draped across like “Time to Shine” and “Chic and Feminine.” Models strutted in the designer’s signature oversized style with hidden bottoms.
When asked about this collection, designer Ying Lau stated, “It is a mixture of creativity and contemporary. I would like every woman to show her unique, confident, splendid and elegant personality.”
Crystalized gunmetal mesh layered both over and underneath bodysuits paired beautifully with plunging necklines and maroon shades. The designer created custom embellished headphones which a select handful of models rocked on the runway to link her connection to the music industry.
Kingcombs rapped his new hit “Type Different” to close the show before designer Ying Lau made a statement with her squad of models all out on the floor. Floor-length muted gold sequin gowns dusted with feather embellishments sent jaws dropping.
