This show was dripping with gold.
The spirits of ancient Egyptian queens were summoned to the modern runway through Alessandra Meskita’s lustrous new collection. Every single detail was gilded with the radiance of Ra – bags, heels, belts. No aspect went untouched. Models glistened with gold accents on their nails, eyes, and hair.
I was very impressed by Meskita’s last season. It was exceptionally sexy and stunning. But what makes me love her even more is her ability to incorporate the confidence and strength of the modern woman. Meskita moves beyond simply designing clothes. As she told us, she is conveying a deeper message – a lifestyle.
She flawlessly juxtaposed the strong, structured components of her dresses with the softness and glamorousness of silk. The experience was so enchanting that the fatigue from my long day of shooting shows was lifted away. This is why fashion is so alluring to me – I never cease to find myself infused with energy from the shows and how they fill me with emotions. It is so inspiring.
