2015 AFF – PAOLO SEBASTIAN
Our Adelaide Fashion Festival Weekend ended in the best way possible with front row seats to the new Paolo Sebastian ‘The Snow Maiden’ Autumn/Winter 2016 Collection which was inspired by Slavic Folktales of a Winter Empress.
Where to begin with this collection and better yet this show?
From the props to the faux snow on the ground, down to the lighting and the amazing music collation brought the Snow Maiden to life.
The show started off dim with the instrumental version of Once Upon a December playing in the background opening with a ready to wear long black coat. From there ti went into all fur looks which included an all fur 50’s inspired dress with long black leather gloves.
We can easily say that was just one of our favourite looks from the show. It then beautifully transitioned into what Paolo Sebastian is best known for, his unbelievable couture gowns which were exactly that unbelievable.
And once again Paul made what some would consider the impossible, possible.
Sheer, beading, tulle and detailed stitch work are just some of the main forms that made up his gowns. Every time one look came down we couldn’t help but turn and wait to see what beautiful creation was going to follow. The collection along with the production felt like a dream. For a moment we forget we were sitting in a marquee in the middle of Adelaide.
Paolo Sebastian took us on an enchanting adventure in a daze of a winter wonderland. The Adelaide Fashion Festival closed on the highest note and we are honoured to have been able to witness all its glory.
Until next year AFF, we can’t wait!
