Feeric Fashion Week Day 5: Paulita Errazuriz
Written by Oana Neagoe
On the fifth day of the wonderful fashion week the Chilean designer, Paulita Errazuriz, presented her collection, whose inspiration was the Romeo and Juliet story and their impossible love. Paulita Errazuriz chose the perfect location to present her unique collection — The Stairs’ Passage, built in the 14th century, transposed the guests into the set of the Shakespearean tragedy.
The creations were defined by a baroque style complemented with a romantic look. Maintaining the classic style but moving the direction into something avant-garde with embroideries and handmade applications shows the original personality of this collection.
The show started in an impressive way. Paulita Errazuriz redefined the concept of pantsuits, but also the one of jumpsuits. By choosing the proper textures, such as velvet, satin or lace, the designer gave a touch of elegance, glamour and sensuality to each piece. Tulle and silk became the main materials for the following dresses. However, what made them so unique and special were the embroideries and the handmade applications, which covered almost entirely each of the dresses. The colors that dominated throughout the show were green, red, navy blue and white.
The dresses with deep V-neckline and up-to-the-thigh splits were in the spotlight of the audience. Bejeweled belts in different forms and shapes were frequently included as an important finishing touch to the dresses in order to accentuate the waist of the models.
