David Koma Fall 2024 Ready-to-Wear: Swans, Divas and Dance

David Koma is at the top of his game when he’s designing in black and white with splashes of color, such as icy blue, camel and red.

This season he sent models strutting down the runway adorned in feathers emulating fierce swans, the bird and the high-society New York women orbiting around Truman Capote.

A mint feather boa attached to a sheer top worn with low-waist black trousers brushed the floor; dresses and tops with trains that swept behind; enlarged evening bags covered in feathers held between the models arms.

His other muses were the late German choreographer Pina Bausch and the young contemporary choreographer Candela Capitán.

“Pina is someone who really reflects fragility and vulnerability, but at the same time, she’s really powerful, strong and dominating, whereas, Candela expresses her art through movement and technology,” the designer said in a preview.

Koma used different fabrics to tell the tale of new and old. The chiffons, satins and velvets represented elegance, meanwhile the tulles and liquid jerseys capture the designer’s enthusiasm for partywear.
