SERGIO HUDSON'S 'GLAM SLAM'
FALL 2022 READY-TO-WEAR
The luxury womenswear brand Sergio Hudson never fails to introduce new eccentricities that amplify the power of what it means to be a woman. This season, the eponymous ready-to-wear label brought glitz and glamor back to fashion week with his tenth landmark collection, ‘Glam Slam’.
The show was set along a lengthy runway that zig-zagged across the Léman Ballroom, and its unconventional structure invited the crowd to experience the collection alongside the models that brought their own spunk to the runway. From loose slip dresses to figure-hugging wool blazers, the collection featured looks for all seasons.
Opening with a bodycon colorblock minidress, this multicolor palette set the scene for the rest of the show. Following a strict rainbow pattern from start to finish, models graced the runway in Hudon’s classic wool pantsuits dressed with silk slip dresses. However, this uniformity was soon interrupted by Hudson’s signature patterns when cheetah print and pinstriped looks soon made their way onto the stage.
Inspired by musical powerhouses like Prince and The New Power Generation, both of whom venerated fashion as an integral part of their artistry, Hudson channeled this flamboyance to create a collection to commemorate the beauty of womanhood. “I wanted to do something that was beautiful, bold, and overtly glamorous and sexy,” says Hudson. “All that while still maintaining a clean and modern feel."
Although the collection itself was enough to captivate audiences, the runway also featured an array of familiar faces like models Winnie Harlow, Yulia Saparniiazova, Aqua Parios, and Sessilee Lopez-Holmes, all of whom brewed up a cacophony of hurrahs during their struts. Because of the more newfangled path for the runway, audiences were able to admire the collection from all angles.
When we think glamor, we think Sergio Hudson, and his milestone of a tenth collection was not only made up of pieces that make you feel like a woman, but were also ones that certainly make you proud to be one.
