Hello there loves!
Amsterdam Fashion Week is in full swing! On the opening night I went to my first ever haute couture show; the comeback show of Monique Collignon! And it was amazing! The models were walking down the runway really slowly doing lots of theatrical moves. These moves showed off some of the wide sleeves really well. And I was able to get some really cool shots of these moves! The collection consists of 13 looks. There are a lot of ruffles, Swarovski embellishments and wide sleeves. My favorite pieces from this collection are the long wide layered black skirt with the see-through turtle neck top, the short soft pink dress with the full layered skirt and the black dress with peplum effect and wide lace sleeves. Also, the hair was a big item in this show! Some of the models were wearing huge 70s afro hair styles and others had this Egyptian style pony tail. For the editing, I decided to make the backgrounds black and white, such that the models really stand out. What do you think of this collection? And which is your favorite piece?
