Although I call myself a fully fledged, all heart and soul, die for it, fashionista, I NEVER watch Fashion TV. I find it a bit weird. Except for this evening. I had a hard day (ended lovely though with drinks with Katie, Mary, Claire, Karen and Mairead from Elevate PR to mark that sad sad occasion of Katie leaving 😦 ). So I crashed on the sofa this evening with a bowl of Crunchy Nut cornflakes and a cuppa to open all the post I have received this week since I was in Limerick. Got the fab lookbook for A/W for Karen Millen and the Christmas lookbook from Coast (can’t wait for you to see some of these pics) and I turned on the TV. Fashion TV is just one station past E and I accidently switched onto it. Low and behold this was fate, becuase I found a new designer! My search for newbees started by finding Mirit Weinstock in Tel Aviv and now it is the turn of Dany Atrache from Beirut.
FTV happended to be showing her show at Haute Couture week in Paris and I was really taken aback with the sheer magnificance of this dresses. I wonder has any actress worn her pieces to the Oscars? Well if not, they should. The power of celebrity in modern society and all that.
Here is the video filmed by fashion tv of this extraordinary collection. Pick your favs.
