FASHION WEEK HAIKUS: Poetry in motion

The Style Notebook asked writer Marilisa Racco to compose haikus inspired by her five favourite fashion shows at LG Fashion Week. Illustrator Cleo Kendall made them look as pretty as they sound.

COMRAGS

Shapeless chic in gray
I’ll wear my cardi backwards
Get me those boots, please

DAVID DIXON

Little black dresses
Woven leather bustiers
After-dark glamour


BARBIE BY DAVID DIXON

Pink and black and gray
Take me from day to nightlife
Bring me a Cosmo

EVAN BIDDELL

Shirts and shorts of cork
Metallic pieces that pop
Prehistory rocks!



ANDY THE-ANH

Flowing printed silk
Day frocks for the stylish gal
Isn’t she lovely?
