As expected, the fourth and fifth day presentations of Paris Fashion Week (PFW), which were loaded with shows from the big industry players, left onlookers craving for more.
Belgian designer Raf Simons, who is helming the French brand Christian Dior since mid 2012, featured a 50s inspired prom dress heavy collection on the fourth day of the event.
Replete with iridescent overlays, lace patterned prints and Afro style colourful stripes, the line included strapless silk frocks, sleek shift dresses and bell-shaped silk skirts.
British-Turkish-Cypriot fashion designer Hussein Chalayan showcased a terrific ready-to-wear collection tilted ‘Breeze Corridor’ on the same day. The range displayed jackets with inverted and unfurled linings, plain white shirts and magnificently voluminous georgette and velvet evening gowns.
French haute couturier Jean Paul Gaultier recreated the sets of American reality television show ‘Dancing With The Stars’ on his catwalk on the fifth day of PFW. The shimmering ensembles included leather shorts, zippered dance dresses, sheer organza baseball jackets and metallic fringed outfits.
Veteran British design talent Vivienne Westwood drew inspiration from the medieval era pilgrims for her latest Spring/Summer-2014 creations. The range showcased short tabard coats, earthy brown flowing cotton dresses and yellow gauchos with peaked shoulders.
