AFW Winter2013 Edition – Dennis Diem

FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE

The stage was set. The show was about to start. The audience was waiting for nothing more than a fantastic collection by Dennis Diem.

Through an imaginary door with male guards in fur hats sitting on sand bags holding flags without symbols, one by one the models came in, in etherial fabrics moving with them as if each garment had a life of its own.

With a color palette of white, salmon, cerize and midnight blue, combining silk and tulle with very well fitted corsets, walking on boots as long as their own legs and with an almost invisible makeup, except for the red lips, the gowns, dressing the models, appeared before our mesmerized eyes blowing us away. I felt at times that I was in a fairy tale or some sort of modern version of the 18th century. In either case, it was perfect.

I believe I have now won you over and  if not, take a look at the last piece. Fantastic!
