George Wu’s ‘Primeval Machiavelli’ Spring Summer 09 Collection

Posted in Designers, Follow the Fashion Competition by brisbane on July 30, 2009

Up-and-coming Australian womenswear designer George Wu’s  Spring Summer 09 collection ‘Primeval Machiavelli’ is  a range which compares the lifestyles of the refined renaissance and primitive caveman eras.

Inspired by the Machiavellian theory of gaining power through force and the human yearning to rule, George’s latest collection explores the façade of sophisticated renaissance which despite evolution, is ultimately driven by the same instinct as times gone by – to be wanted, desired and noticed.
