Les Docks, Paris

Last weekend I went to Paris for a few days and managed to squeeze in a visit to an exhibition at Les Docks (the interim outpost of Palais Galliera, le Musée de la Mode et du Costume). This small exhibition is currently showcasing the cult label Comme des Garçons’ spring/summer 2012 collection and Cristóbal Balenciaga’s colossal collection of period costumes. It was well worth battling my vin rouge hangover to see this little gem.

The Comme Des Garcons exhibition entitled "White Drama" was my favourite. The collection was inspired by the color white’s significance to the major stages in a woman’s life; Birth, communion, marriage, death, and transcendence. Apparently this involves lots of 3D flowers!

I was really interested to see how the flowers were made. seemed like a mix of cotton and some kind of towelling material! Strange but effective..

Stunning balenciaga dress


There was also a tiny display of dresses by the designer Yiqing Yin which had incredible pleated detailing

Wedding Dress

A customer has placed an order for this dress to wear for her wedding..

I'm re-making it in ivory raw silk and georgette and possibly cream suede petals and leaves. It's going to be a much softer look..

Fashion Film... Coming soon!

This week I'm editing a film I made with Lisa Cazzato Vieyra showing my collection Paradise Lost. Here are a few stills to give an idea of how it's going to look...

We had so much fun on the day of the shoot, we shot 6 hours of film. I'm planning to edit it down to about two minutes! Hmm..

Me, making a few adjustments..

Can't wait to start editing and post the finished film. Watch this space!
