PARIS FASHION WEEK 2016

It’s that time of the year again, where all your dreamiest fairytales come to life in Paris Fashion Week.

In the city of Love & Fashion, designers showcase their best Haute Couture Wear for our eyes to lust over.

Every year there is always one designer that knocks them all out of the park and this year we are giving that special mention to Adelaide’s own Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian.

Paolo Sebastian is showcasing his Gilded Wings Couture Collection  AW16/17 for the first time in Paris, an inspiration and friend he has done it again.  Somehow his imagination has created everything we never realised we wanted.

Paul’s collection is now showing at La Maison Champs Elysees inspired by a Woodland Faery and as Paul said himself “I want my designs to capture the imagination and allow people to dream” and dreaming we are.

Aside from some serious Aussie pride, we can’t skip out on the classics, featuring Christian Dior Haute Couture, Chanel, Elie Saab, Valentino who are giving us major 1920’s vibes and sporting a new spin on suits, which we will be featuring in a new post soon.  These classic designers are taking us far far away to a fantasy land where James Dean picks you up and you’re whisked away to the South of France to an elusive Movie Premier Elizabeth Taylor is starring in, ahhh if only.

It just gets better and better and we can’t get enough!

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!

Last night was the finale show for this year’s Adelaide Fashion Festival, closing with creative genius Paolo Sebastian and let’s just say he shut it down!

Since it was the last of Adelaide Fashion Festival, we wanted to dress the part.

Keeping it light and fresh and weather appropriate trying to capture that effortless chic cliché – well if you want to get technical it was pretty effortless as we were running around all day we didn’t have much time to pre-plan outfits.

With Georgia opting for a white suit that can basically be worn with anything and Alexis giving us major Blair Waldorf vibes in knitted skirt and chunky jewels.
