Sunday night Donatella Versace brought fairies to life in her Fall 2015 Haute Couture Collection, inspired by the flora and fauna of the forest. 26,000 orchids were laid on the runway underneath glass panels, while a Medusa head made by the blooms framed the entrance to the runway.
“I call the collection tough, but ethereal at the same time,” Versace says “I wanted to explore the softer side of the Versace woman.”
Her evening dresses were in moody, dusty pastels punctuated with shots of color. From fluid columns to a pair of feathered-out ballgowns, Versace created interest with intricacies of drape and cut. The fabrics featured countless takes on texture and luminosity, sometimes in the same look.
