After New York, London and Milan fashion week, the Paris Fashion Week wasn’t without any less aplomb. Being one of the most awaited fashion weeks of the year, it started as ostentatious as it can get. And what better show of exhibiting their creative leap than the fashion weeks?

And that’s a wrap! After our long-term House favorite modeled the extraordinary vaporous volumes of the last look, the emotion of the Spring-Summer 2019 show soared as #MariaGraziaChiuri’s creations and @sharoneyaldance’s performance came together in a pulse-raising crescendo that filled the Stygian space in a stunning expression of lyrical poetry and powerful sensuality.

From the famous, Victoria’s Secret Show, the fashion racecourse is all about the ‘Joie de vivre’. As such, Dior opened the runway with a spectacular show interlaced around dance, music, theatre and drama to kick off the nine-day extravaganza with a tippy-tappy disco-hippie vibe. Along this, Paris fashion Week 2018 witnessed the battle of two extreme talents, Dior and Gucci.
Designer Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior said that using dance in the show was ‘an act of liberation’ to break free from the catwalk corset. And designer Chiuri slowed with all fastidiousness, a case for her vision of a feminist, sensual, and unabashedly unpractical Dior show added with gracefulness of a mesmerizing dance performance in a stunning black space.

For Spring-Summer 2019, Monsieur Dior's beloved flowers were interpreted in a fresh way by #MariaGraziaChiuri who took those floral motifs and tie-dyed them to create visually mottled and striated prints that bloomed across dancer-inspired loose coats and softly swishing skirts and dresses. #DiorSS19 Choreographer: @SharonEyalDance Music: #OriLichtik
Her collection consisted of sheer dresses, floaty, ethereal dresses in pleated styles plus bodysuits, leotards, leggings and mesh tops, not to mention ballet pumps and visible underwear as a part of her collection. Models looked ethereal like the Greek goddesses with their elongated tutus and tank tops.
Dior’s fashion nemesis, Gucci, Alessandro Michele’s collection was any less other-worldly. With the iconic singer Jane Birkin kick-starting the show singing the classic Baby Alone in Babylon, the crowd already went berserk. In fact, Gucci’s collection was more like a detour from the ongoing haute couture and Alessandro’s collection was a very much ‘back-in-time’ runway. Particularly, the dresses of flip-flapping fringe, the men in droopy Gucci underpants, and the handbags shaped like Mickey Mouse’s head. The collection went as far as having a print of the iconic Dolly Parton on their jacket and the top. The collection all in all had a very 1960 hippie vibe with their corduroy suits, flaring trousers, and disco tops. Now, if that is not called going back in time than what else is?
With two giant fashion players taking over the fashion runway, it is difficult to state which of the two impressed the fashion police more. Maria Grazia Chiuri with her dandy, ethereal collection or Alessandro Michele with his hippish collection and their idea of rejecting the mores of the mainstream cultural life, you decide.
