Dear Diane and Shaded Viewers,
U.S based brands came together at CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Americans in Paris. Let’s talk about a few designers that made an impression at this showroom.
Gigi Burris Millinery
A headwear designer who works with fine details such as leather cut into fine stripes that can almost look like feathers. The collection has a dark romantic tone, working with dark blues and black. She created a headband with fine strings that looked as a feathered barber wire, which she incorporates also into her hats.
Tome’s fall winter 2015 collection is feminine and strong lined collection. Tailored oversized coats, midi and maxi dresses and a pop of lace peeking under the hem. The color use is variable which makes the palette fit for every season and prints are used in a complementary subtle way.
Colorful and practical bags, Edie Parker’s clutches and totes are made out of hard material making the designs long lasting. Inspired by vintage bags, every design has a mirror attached to the inside or has a mirror that comes with the bag. Clutches have great prints and details, making sure all eyes will be on the bag while carrying it.
