After seasons of the haute couture on the runway amidst elite socialites , fashion bloggers and influencers , with the top models walking down the aisle ( fashion Runway ) , Donatella Versace took a different road this year .
Instead Donatella Versace opted to present her 17 beautifully designed and rendered to a high level of inventive workmanship looks on mannequins which were theatrically spotlighted on the 2nd floor of Versace ‘s Avenue Montaigne boutique. Also, she herself was Absent from the event .
Wanna knoe Why –
As we already told in a post earlier this year Versace is not gonna held Haute Couture Shows (read more for the full story )
Hopefully this might work in favour for the brand , as its only weeks left for the Academy Awards , so not having a grand broadcasted Runway show allows them to have a have these relatively unseen couture collection be directly donned by the A- List Celebrities , this Season . ( We all wll have to wait for that )
But on to : The collection. The idea this season was metamorphosis, what the brand titled it as “the beauty of transformation.”
The colour palette was nothing less futuristic with all metallics ranging from gray , darkened silver to pink .
Th ateliers focused on themes—knots, pleats, organic, and metal.
One hundred and ten meters of Swarovski crystals spun around the hooped underskirt of a fan-pleated ball gown,
the stones glinting from beneath the soft veil.
And another ateliers with Crystal snakeskin “scales” transitioned into feathers on another dress. And there was lotsa work with chain mail,
In short , we loved every single piece from the collection , the couture collection was beyond Perfection.
Wouldn’t it be a bliss to see these ateliers on a runway instead ?
