Tata Naka at London Fashion Week


For the Cultural-Agenda blog, l went down to the Institute of Contemporary Arts to see the Tata Naka presentation.

The AW2016 collection channels avenues of inspiration especially the ‘last days of disco’ signalled by the Reaganomic 1980s.

The heady days of Studio 54 saw an abrupt end in 1979 and Tata Naka embodies this cultural endpoint with ease. The collection effectively showcases this part of history by placing hand-painted images of iconic disco queens like Donna Summers, Diana Ross and Grace Jones onto old Wall Street Journal backgrounds.

I was particularly fascinated by the fully beaded dresses and beaded applique pieces alongside UFO spaceship prints. The contrasting bright colours used throughout the collection left me and everyone else in the room longing for more pieces from Tata Naka.
