Michael Angel is another designer who opted to live stream his Fall 2010 show (catch the Ports 1961 video on our blog). But, as always a lot of details are lost on camera. The softness that made the angora wools so pretty and plush, for instance, as well as the complicated laser-cut bonded jersey details. These details worked best for me over the silk wools (some of my favorite looks of the collection), but looked a bit garish when combined with Angel’s digital prints on stretch silk charmeuse and stretch nylon jersey. The stretch looks were definitely only for the model physique, whereas the wood suiting and dresses as well as some other draped silks, would be more flattering on more shapes. It was interesting when fashioned into skirts and jacket bottoms that resembled cage skirts. He certainly explored the technique and used it to many different effects.
