Shiatzy Chen – Deep Purple and the Blues – #PFW
Taiwanese designer, Shiatzy Chen took over the Ecole de Beaux Arts in Paris this past fashion week to show her Autumn-Winter 2011-2012 collection.
A maze-like runway with deep moody lighting gave the spectators a significant amount of time to view each item even though they moved quite quickly.
The collection supposedly inspired by Anna Wintour and the chic working-girl type was full of black on bright silks as a dominant theme, as well as the Chinese art of embellishment, cinched-waisted coats, white-work, fur and embroidered silks, all set to a deep purple tone that ended in a final wave of a single blue flowing gown. Shiatzy Chen is considered the “Chanel” brand of Taiwan, and focuses on luxury and aesthetics.
