Kim Shui Presents F/W 2019 Runway Show

On Friday, February 8, Kim Shui showcased her Fall Winter 2019 collection in New York City where she explored the boundaries of risque in fashion. Provocative shapes and revealing pieces seem to dominate our social media feeds, but they haven’t translated onto the runway yet. As fashion trends veer towards oversized pieces and prairie dresses, being covered up has been called the female response to #MeToo. This collection celebrates women by embodying femininity and the female body. Designed by a woman, for women, Kim’s pieces bring allure and seduction to the forefront, by being cool, eccentric and sexy. She wants women to know that they have a choice in fashion – sexy being one of them.
