A combination of jewelry and clothing, Laurel DeWitt’s designs are always impressively breathtaking, and this season was no different. Every metal garment was entirely hand-crocheted, hand-cut, and hand-painted; a skill that left the audience wondering if they were seeing body jewelry or woven metallic-hued threads.
Models were decked out in bejeweled dresses dripping with tinkling chain-link adornments, creating a tune with every stride. The mesh-based garments were my absolute favorite; DeWitt sculpted the mesh into coats, skirts, dresses, hats, and jackets, all sprinkled with eye-catching hand-painted metal flowers.
Being a Game of Thrones fan myself, I could easily envision many of these pieces worn by some of the fiercest female characters on the show. Her grand finale dress evoked some feelings of “Coming to America,” but I would love to see Ellaria wearing it for a wedding celebration, or Cersei Lannister gliding through King’s Landing in the long silver caped number.
Besides DeWitt’s brilliant baubles, she also showed support to the Transgender community by enlisting Carmen Carrera as a model for the show. As Carrera mentioned on her Instagram account, this was her first all-female runway show; a defining moment for her career, I’m sure.
