Haute Couture Spanning Continents
Jera Creative Agency together with Fabusse created Seven Continents of Fashion which was launched during the Cannes Film Festival 2018. Seven Continents of Fashion showcased the latest in high profile couture designers from across the world. The four designers who presented their collections this season were: In Couture, By Thaher, Kartikeya and Nila Baharuddin.
Elegance is the key word for the collections presented by Seven Continents. Starting with precious dresses which seemed to be made solely from crystals, continuing with more edgy evening outfits and ending with a positive and sustainable note, the whole show was like attending a ball.
In Couture brought to London the glamourous style that you would see on the red carpet. Ball gowns, diamonds, sequins, volumes and v-necks were the key elements of In Couture’s collection.
By Thaher continued the glamorous gala with more sparkles and feathers. Fitted silhouettes, tulle and lace were used by the designer for this season.
Kartikeya opted for short evening dresses which offered the whole presentation a fresh vibe. Besides embroidered dresses, the designer used shorts and skirts in combination with fabulous tops.
The show ended with Nila Baharuddin’s collection which offered a different perspective in comparison with the first three designers. Nila used Indonesian design elements and locally sourced materials to design modern cuts, but still convey a traditional feeling throughout her collection.
