NAISSANCE’, representing the birth, or ‘rebirth,’ of her label as an official Parisian fashion house gave life to classical French couture techniques while maintaining modern, avant-garde silhouettes.
I do not know if Kristen Ley Studios is certified couture as the qoute above suggests but we do know that all the fabric manipulation was done by hand.
She had a way of crumpling leather as if it was paper and giving texture to tulle as concrete. This trick of texturing fabric to change its perspective made this show the most memorable of fashion week.
The collection also featured a combination of delicate fabrics and harsh silhouettes as if to juxtaposition between a woman perspective and how others see her. The line is just 2 years old but the concept is so unique, it is no surprise that we have been hearing this name everywhere.
We did want to see more but she has yet to add any collections to her website. Check out the runway on our instagram (Tfgnyc) and youtube. All images will be posted on facebook.
