Rampage

Fashion

RAMPAGE


“I don’t do fashion, I am Fashion!” – Coco Chanel

Fashion is an art, a religion, a peek into a personality. For some, it’s an escape or a disguise while for others it’s just being comfortable.
But ultimately, fashion is an individual statement of expression for each of us and RAMPAGE is the avenue to express yourself. A fashion show is a chance for a designer to show off a particular aesthetic, a particular mood, a particular feel or point of view.
As a result, fashion shows can tend to be more conceptual and focused on a higher level idea where spectators enjoy the procession of cutting-edge ensembles.
