Dame en Fleurs, Steven Khalil for Haute Couture Paris FW
Rich in Detail
Steven has designed a collection rich in details and using exclusive embroidery techniques for creations that he hopes are surprising. Each piece is meticulously constructed, individually while being part of the same story.
Some of these handmade dresses can take from 100 to 200 hours for design, construction, and finishing. This is part of the brand’s DNA. Each collection is different and special.
Play with the overlay, create tufts of raffia that rest on a silvery metal base to boost the luster. Combining pink silk georgette powder cut by hand with a fine intricate wire reminiscent of the vine. And even incorporate small bursts of stamens as a reminder of the floral theme.
The heavily embroidered pieces are designed as foliage that separates into smaller individual clusters. More textures using beads silver metal, jet black, and verdigris for more luster and shine. A deeper and more luxurious silk velvet reinforces the opposition matte and shiny embroidery.
