For example, the entire first part is with the macramé which was a result of the photos. Afterward, it’s all a story of embroidery, texture, prints, and this is all a result of the work and research that I was doing. These textures made with the flowers.These girls are both pure and perverse at times, with these very high heels and these little dresses appear slightly timid. And then there are ball gowns paired with "flat shoes", super-short dresses with great tops, and it's these little contrasts which make the collection contemporary. This eclecticism which represents the woman.It was about lightness. Extreme volumes were sought with absolute lightness. In addition, the idea to do it outdoors, with a breeze and movements which give life to the clothes.Céline Dion: Always a dreamer, it’s what we all dream about. It’s like everything that’s painted on the ceiling, we can’t get to it but we want to. It passes before us and we want it, we want every gown. It really was fabulous. Thank you Giambattista Valli, the whole teal. Fabulous!Music of the show (only to be used in the context of the show, under the protection of the right to information)
