Dries Von Noten looked inspired from museum stuff prints after his trip to Victoria and Alberta museum. The show was organized in i think the world most beautiful town hall Hôtel de Ville. The birds and dragons and some scarf like prints, dominated the collection. I heard the song was running backstage with long pauses, oh ! thought how beautiful effect the designer was created.
The dramatic collection for Fall 2012 by Damir Doma at Paris was based on "Modern Renaissance". The pieces were quite comfortable with a heavy cross around models neck. The clothes were giving an overall voluminous look with over sized coats, baggy pants, big big skirts and layered effect. But the last few pieces were too light fabric wise.
