Josh Goot - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2008
(NEW YORK) This young Sydney native’s bold, sporty collection, shown in a Chelsea gallery, confirmed Josh Goot’s status as an up-and-coming talent to watch. The tone was sexy and modern, from the techno beats playing in the background to the models’ clean makeup and hair swept back in ponytails. The asymmetrical jersey dresses and skirts, although perhaps too skin-tight for the average customer, made a daring and fresh statement. The designer’s geometric patterns and metallic details were ubiquitous, and Goot experimented with color and contrast even more than in previous seasons, successfully straying away from his signature monochromatic looks. Bright violets and yellows, circular geometric patterns, and original combinations of gold and silver lycra and grey jersey stood out in this presentation which was at once arty and casual, ultra-feminine and modern.
