Haute Couture Paris Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2018
Paris is the original birth place of the Haute Couture Houses from Dior, Vionet to Chanel and there always seems to be an expectation of Paris to be very stylish from a Fashion point of view.
It was such an honour to be invited personally to attend a catwalk show in Paris especially as a blogger as I was wondering if I was the only one from London and would there be anyone else I knew here to keep me company. The Paris Fashion Scene is very new to me but really impressed by the high standards and presentation of such Fashion Designer’s Rani Zakhem as he debuted his Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2018/19 collection to the International press, style influencers and celebrities.
PARIS HAUTE COUTURE FASHION WEEK
It was such an honour to be invited personally to attend a catwalk show in Paris especially as a blogger as I was wondering if I was the only one from London and would there be anyone else I knew here to keep me company. The Paris Fashion Scene is very new to me but really impressed by the high standards and presentation of such Fashion Designer’s Rani Zakhem as he debuted his Haute Couture Autumn Winter 2018/19 collection to the International press, style influencers and celebrities. As soon as I arrived I just couldn’t wait to explore the city on foot and be immersed in a city full of culture and intrigue.
In Paris the fashion show production efforts made is just on another level with all the fine details, polished floors to the beautiful grade II listed buildings set the standard very high during fashion week here.
Atelier Rani Zakhem is a Couturier Fashion Designer based in Lebanon but has showcased his work in the fashion capitals such as London, Rome and most notably Paris for his collections each season.
Even during the shows the Press Team from the French PR Agency have usher’s that walk you over to your assigned seat which is great hospitality. But in London this rarely even happens as you have to navigate your seat on your own and a tight squeeze for space so it’s always good to give yourself plenty of time before the shows.For me it was very special to see it up close as sometimes it can take up to two years to produce a new collection for some Couture Houses is a known fact.
Zakhem returns this season with a vibrant and sparkling tribute to the combating and combative woman, Amazone of all jungles and Glamazonian, seductive when like a warrior goddess, she appears in her crystal armour.
Signature Pieces in the Collection
My favourite looks that came down the Runway included a piece in the collection such as the black spencer jacket with red black and gold crystals in clusters on an incendiary sheath or on the sleeves looked very classic.
Themes for this collection explore the poetry of an imaginary jungle where Rani Zakhem envisions his muse as the glamazone and delicate guardian of a paradise.
In celebration of this nature there was a feeling of dark romance that had a spellbinding effect in a crinoline creation, fluttering black tulle with scattering of crystals evoking a spider in its precious cobweb.
What I admired about the collection most is that it represents women who appear, strong, but sensual where authority appertains to her and lives in her evidently with elegance. Subtle references from Yves Saint Laurent, Marc Bohan and Azzedine Alaia punctuate the couture vocabulary of Rani Zakhem, between a Saharienne detail, a draped moulage, the powerful minimalism of a white dress enhanced by a slight ornament to create a dream worthy wedding dress. Apparently couture fashion week is where all the wedding dress trends are born to embody each season by a new muse of the moment.
If you ever have the chance to attend Fashion Week in Paris I highly recommend it as it’s a place of culture and the centre of fashion where all the latest ground breaking trends happen.
