Fall 2019 Haute Couture: Alexis Mabille
(press release) Through this collection, I wanted to recapture the very essence of Haute Couture: the exclusivity, the craftsmanship and beautiful materials.
My work is to highlight a woman, to dress her in a way that transcribes her state of mind. Each design is therefore created to match a personality. Frivolous or thoughtful, charming or wild, playful, natural or sophisticated, confident and radiant… each of my clients benefits from the privacy of our Couture salons, confiding in very personal ways and allowing me to sketch the outfit that will bring out her singular beauty. T
his collection was designed with volumes that skim or embrace the body, structured or evanescent lines, to compliment all body shapes. The fabrics I have selected — silk faille, crepe, tulle, organza -- become the body’s makeup.
Each piece is hand-worked for hours, in our ateliers, enriching fabrics through washes of plissé, lace inlays, mother-of-pearl and crystal embroideries, velvet, satin and gold thread detailing. These creations are the expression of women who distinguish themselves through their style and presence.
