Livia Tang-Fashion Scout- London Fashion Week AW19
It’s been a great couple of days in London. Hopping from tube to bus at the bidding of Google maps, trying to locate runway shows and presentation venues. Thanks to London Fashion Week, Feb 15th through to 19th was packed with fashionable fun and networking opportunities.
London based Japanese fashion designer, Livia Tang wrapped up Fashion Scout & LFW with her AW19 collection on Feb 17th. Held at the Freemason’s Hall Presentation Studio, Fashion Scout 2019 was an occasion for rising and known designers to showcase their work to buyers, editors, bloggers and fashion critics.
Fashion Scout London Fashion Week 2019 Features Japanese Designer Livia Tang
Livia Tang brought historic and present-day Macau to LFW 2019 in an undeniably powerful way. Without a doubt, her AW19 collection wasn’t one you could waft past or ignore. Such was the compelling fashion in which the models conveyed the brand’s story. It goes without saying that here at Mammypi, we were particularly enthralled. Not only by the double-sided designs, the hair & make-up but also by the show-stopping deliberateness of the models’ glide.
The Spirit Of The Collection
Evidently, the spirit of the collection; a celebration of the sibling bond and Japanese textiles was intricately woven into each piece on display. Marrying sustainable fabrics like recycled viscose with linen, masculine/feminine fabrics like corduroy with jacquard projected the depth of Tang’s message. Arguably, this was almost a call to action. To make room for the re-enforcement of how enduring sibling bonds can and should be, despite differing natures.

Ahead of the corduroy skirt and biker jacket combo, the cord-strapped black dress was our undisputable fave by a mile. Guaranteed to transition from casual to a smart utility with ease, Tang with this piece makes no bones about expressing her burgeoning design prowess. Also, especially beautiful was how Tang’s pieces effortlessly played natural trimmings & beadings against traditional weaving, floral tapestry and patchwork. All this without losing sight of her reverence for steadfast sibling ties. The beadings & trimmings mainly jade, shell or cord being naturally created and processed again projected her leanings towards things organic – fashion & family-wise. At Mammypi.com, our best advice to the fashion-forward would be…” make way for the thriving House of Tang”.
