This spring/summer 20 season, Stine Goya launches “House of Goya” drawing inspiration from the extravagant aesthetic, the freedom of expression and inclusive community of the international Ballroom culture, as documented through the 1990 American film Paris is Burning, which showcases the ball culture of New York and the African-American, Latino, gay and transgender communities and Kiki, a documentary released in 2016, which involves a group of LGBTQ youths of colour who unite to form a safe gathering space.
Without focusing on specific references to individual people, costumes or eras - the SS20 Collection, draws on the longstanding tradition of alternative families and seeks to celebrate the individuals and their styles that make Stine Goya the brand it is today.
In this celebration of diversity, the SS20 runway cast included members of ballroom communities and LGBTQ representation whilst the "House of Goya" collection showcased hand-painted illustrations inspired by the graphics of ballroom posters from 80’s New York, scaled polka-dot combinations and check prints, acid florals and graphic prints on an array of dress shapes including the classic oversized Stine silhouette; but all worn with either co-ordinating or clashing print tights and metallic platform heels, over size clip-on earrings, and chunky bead necklaces, and hair scrunchies. Details included ruffles, puff and one-shoulder pieces, and mini lengths in a multitude of vibrant shades including pastel lime, turquoise, lilac, metallic pink, classic red and cobalt blue.
