Liz Black A/W 2014 by Karolina Burdon.

For Fashion Meets Paranoia designer Liz Black once again explored the more conceptual end of fashion, this time visiting the world of the surrealists to present an engaging showcase where models posed and pouted with fake moustaches, lobster eyebrows and eyes painted on carefully placed hands. These accessories were an echo of the clothing. When I watched the presentation it was the puffy lips skirt dress which stole the show, shown alongside an A-line caramel leather dress with a gigantic horn-like moustache chest embellishment. With these more outrageous garments Liz Black showed simpler A-line dresses and separates that adhered to her minimalist aesthetic, in a tasty palette of gold, jade and blood red.
