What you need to know about Fashion Week Studio’s Fashion Show in February 2023.
Fashion Week Studio is becoming the most prestigious independent fashion show-producing studio during Fashion Week. Times, when shows off the official calendars were not worth seeing are over and Fashion Weeks Studio is proof of it. They select the most stunning talents, curate beautiful collections and shows. They choose gorgeous venues that match very well the beautiful collections. Last but not least they focus on international and professional models which is a fundamental part of a good fashion show. I attended their Fashion Show at historical Palazzo Clerici in February where they presented international designers from Spain, Italy, Albania, Kosovo and Mexico. All designers presented works-of-art collections, full of details and magnificent craftsmanship.
Salvatore Pappacena- during MFW.
Salvatore Pappacena’s runway was a spectacle with a sumptuous & colourful collection by southern Italian designer Salvatore Pappacena. The owner of Fashion Week Studio has renamed him “the magician”. Salvatore is celebrated for his ability to consistently create new designs and garments that remain true to his signature of feminine elegance, seductive shapes and sensual designs. Yet one continues to be amazed at his creative innovation. We had the pleasure to see flowy fabrics, capes made of the finest silks, feathers, gemstones & crystal beaded collars and cocktail dresses. Shapes of pink, oranges & black are brought together in harmony to astound the audience. The collection was nothing if not absolutely striking.
Frida Xhoi & Xhei during MFW.
Frida Xhoi & Xhei presented Albanian traditional gowns. The number of intricate details, the rich fabrics and the number of layers that each of these spectacular pieces requires was nothing but astonishing. This historical venue was certainly the perfect fit to present this lavish & luxurious collection. Frida Xhoi & Xhei, hold their name from the incredible women and talent; Ms Frida herself & her two beautiful daughters, Xhoi & Xhei. Ms Frida is globally known for her breathtaking wedding gowns, which awaken the fairy tale each little girl once dreamt of.
As the show began, we saw what appeared to be royalty entering the runway wearing an extraordinary bridal gown that dazzled the eye. The dress was adorned with crystals and embellishments from top to bottom. Frida’s atelier makes each and every gown by hand and we can only imagine the countless hours this walking piece of art took to be brought to life.
The audience could be heard to wow this creation as the model graciously walked down the catwalk. This opening piece was followed by nine more astonishing bridal gowns that were all fit for a true Princess’ wedding. Every individual creation brought forth palatial structure, and voluptuous regality, paired with ornaments and felt simply unsurpassable.
The show was closed by a sublime black wedding gown embellished with thousands of crystals throughout the bodice and the skirt. This striking piece was presented to you by none other than Frida’s niece, the famous Endi Demneri.
Cristina Tamborero at Fashion Week Studio Show.
Two incredibly well-tailored red gowns worn by influencers Julia Bark and Meggi Ndrio opened the show of Cristina Tamborero. Meggi Ndrio’s dress had bedazzling crystal buttons aligned perfectly in the front and the bottom of this skillfully constructed garment flowed with fringes that caressed the floor. The combination of classic elegance and Spanish boldness was exhilarating. This was followed by white wedding gowns that were clean cut, yet had intricate details which are and remain her signature. The craftsmanship of each and every dress was astonishing. The models wore beautiful red roses in their hair, the perfect accessory complimenting the striking collection.
Narciza Severa from Mexico to Milan.
The audience was then captivated by the famous Narciza Severa from Mexico. This talented designer is recognized as one of the greatest couturiers of evening attire in Monterrey, México. He presented a stunning, classical, yet deeply glamorous collection of perfectly shaped wedding gowns.
The creations were contemporary yet feminine and deeply seductive, with breathtaking handcrafted details. The sensational designer displayed an asserted dramatic flair through magnificent floor-length capes made of tulle and chiffons paired with crystal-embellished corsets.
The crowd was flabbergasted by a mermaid-shaped garment that was constructed with a crystal hand-beaded quintessential corset layered by a sizeable yet fine transparent tulle coating which ended in what appeared to be three-dimensional clouds of lace.
Tina Traditional Couture
Tina Traditional Couture was a true show. Each piece was based on traditional Kosovar costumes but modernized to reflect the luxurious and elegant style that the brand is known for. The gowns were a true work of art and a testament to the craftsmanship that goes into each piece. The attention to detail was evident in the ornate embroidered details that adorned the gowns, adding a touch of opulence to the traditional designs. It was a unique experience that brought the history and heritage of Kosovan culture to life in a modern and innovative way.
Fashion Week Studio’s showcase is unmatched in the field of curating independent designers to be presented during Fashion Week in Milano. One week after they curated a wonderful fashion show during Paris Fashion Week. This time they took spectators to iconic hotel at Place Vendome. Fashion Week Studio organizes their shows during major Fashion Weeks, so it’s worth to follow them and check their line up. It’s definitely worth it.
