Christophe Josse: Dainty Rhymes
Christophe Josse brought subtle androgyny to a whole new level by fusing somewhat masculine styling with feminine apparel. To the way the models moved, it seemed as though the models were schizophrenic whilst walking down in their look.
Nonetheless, the collection featured a selection of intricate lace, sequin and feather detailing, which should be beautifully admired with these black and white images.That’s kind of what I like about black and white images; the beauty of being able to focus.
Also, when at fashion shows, I often find myself noticing the expressions on the audience’s faces. (Is that weird?) Anyway, if you look close enough, it’ll change as each look comes down the runway. It’s like watching an adapted short film to the main blockbuster feature film.
I only wished I had enough eyes (and hands) to capture the looks and the expressions separately.
Would be cool, no?

Spine-tingling Couturier, Eymeric François
If there was an award for the designer who sent the most chills down an audience’s spines, it would go to Eymeric François.
Think gothic christian glamour and Eymeric François is what you’ll imagine, right down to the styling and music. The audience was surrounded with darkness as the models came down the runway in intricately designed pieces that had lace, zippers and armour. You’d think the looks would be over exaggerated with the heavy makeup and artificial cross tattoos. But, it wasn’t.
There was a fine line between perfection and down right flamboyance and Eymeric François threaded this line with perfectly nimble fingers.
In all honesty, the audience could not peel their eyes off the pieces, it would hurt if they did.

If you didn’t know, Eymeric François was invited by Dr Frank Cintamani as part of Women’s Fashion Week’s exclusive lineup for a Haute Couture Showcase in Singapore. Many may be outraged with the idea of bringing Haute Couture out from Paris but I don’t see why not. These incredibly talented couturiers are creating art forms that are beyond admirable and they should be celebrated for their talent by having them at more exclusive Haute Couture showcases around the world. This art form should not be left to perish all alone. If it wants to survive, it needs to reach more people. And if it wants to reach more people, it needs to abolish its archaic view.
Thank you Dr Frank Cintami and WOMCOMM for having us at the event! It was a huge delight to see these pieces of art up close and kudos for always being such gracious hosts.
