Vionnet is a new brand, but in great progress… and for this season´s Fall collection the designer had used valenki felt for the dresses – a material used for traditional boots in Russia. A very interesting choice of material.
Afterward I went backstage…to see a very happy team celebrating the great success of the show. Often we don´t realize how much time and effort that has gone into a show like this, not only to create the collection, but the whole organization of it: The light, the choice of stage, models and music, the make-up, the practice and all the other things… it´s a big job that takes up to 6 months, and we only get to see 15 minutes of it! So imagine how these 15 minutes have to be absolutely perfect! And they succeeded…
