Description
Women today deserve a lot more credit than what Richard Quinn takes them for. They want modern (or modernized) clothes, not the repurposed couture looks that Quinn sent down his Fall 2019 runway. Though they were show-stopping in their own right, they weren't original nor the least bit contemporary!

Richard Quinn‘s designs are many things—beautiful, opulent, extravagant, and the like. What they aren’t, however, is original. It’s one thing to be influenced by the greats of the Golden Age of Haute Couture, it’s another matter entirely to borderline copy their designs. Without Quinn’s star-power, his entire Fall 2019 line would have been trashed as a mere regurgitation of the old-school looks from the likes of Balenciaga and Dior. And there lies the keyword as well: old. Without the black latex gimmicks and face-covering styling, we wouldn’t know the difference between these items the ones shown in the history books of fashion. There’s no sense of modernity here whatsoever, and instead of working on the cut and construction of the frocks, Quinn just piled on the embellishments instead. That did little to nothing in evoking a contemporary edge on such pieces. Some of the more exaggerated shapes even took the ridiculous factor up a few notches! Inevitably, once the hype of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II having watched her show a few seasons back dies down, Richard Quinn might be just another copier of designers past. He seriously needs to modernize his clothes!
