100 years of Vionnet

Posted 01 October 12

Yesterday night during Paris Fashion Week, Vionnet celebrated 100 years of the maison with a gala dinner at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild.
During the event the first capsule demi-couture collection went down the runway, each of the 20 gowns being a one-of-a-kind creation.

It was also the occasion for the premiere of a short film celebrating the timeless and influential vision of Vionnet and feautiring dresses from the Spring 2013 collection. The film "Homage to Isadora Duncan" is directed by Alessandro Possati (which happens to be my brother!), and also pays tribute to modern dance pioneer Duncan, who was Vionnet's contemporary in 1920s Paris and a rich source of inspiration for the legendary designer.


Some of my favourite pieces from the collection:
