Take a walk through the enchanted forest—French couturier Franck Sorbier had the audience spellbound with his woodland fairytale filled with nymphets, pixies, elves and mystical sirens. Opening his doors to the coveted world of couture, he invited the public for a small price, to be a part of this elite event at Paris’ Cirque d’Hiver theater.
Goddess-like Gretel’s pranced down the runway adorned in Sorbier’s signature hand-dyed, crinkled couture. The intricate craftsmanship of each piece was awe-inspiring. His tempestuous textures and laborious technique reflected a raw, supernatural, mythical quality that was juxtaposed with an unexpected innocence and beauty.
The sheer beauty of nature was captured in the autumn color palette. A moss-like pant suit, a cloak resembling a bold, magnificent Pine tree, a frock made from bark and a gown sprinkled with fall foliage. Burnt reds and oranges set the ensembles ablaze while deep blues and greens extinguished the flame.
The culmination of the show consisted of a fabulous bride in a flirty silhouette, wearing matching booties.
As Haute Couture week came to a close, Sorbier enraptured the audience with a magical grand finale.
