Couture Fashion Week on 27th November to 2 December, will present designers from Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture Paris, which are On Aura Tout Vu, Julien Fournié, Bouchra Jarrar, Maurizio Galante, and Yiqing Yin that will showcase their collection in singapore for the very first time. returning designers include Christophe Josse (my favourite), Gustavo Lins, and Alexis Mabille. Mr. Didier Grumbach and Suzy Menkes are some of the prominent fashion figures expected to attend the showcase.
At the first press conference, Julien Fournié showcased some of the designs which are feminine, but structured and dominated by white and pastel colors. I love the simple silhouette and the slit details.
Another designer to give the sneak peek is On Aura Tout Vu, which has interesting show concept with edgy collection incorporating gorgeous details; totally not for the faint hearted. Their color palette revolves around black, white, and striking red.
Below are some of the preview from Mauritzio Galante who will be presenting 15 new creations together with his iconic retrospective pieces. Shown at the residence of French Ambassador, His Excellency Olivier Caron, Galante's pieces are done in detailed constructive manner with variation of beautifully adorned pleats.
