I first heard about the Fashion Days Luxembourg back in spring or so, and since then I have been looking forward to the event. This weekend it finally took place during two days in Luxembourg's most known casino. As you know I attended a few similar events in Belgium this year, so I was particularly eager to see if the concept of fashion days would find recognition in Luxembourg, too. What I witnessed from the organization seemed a bit chaotic at first, but in the end everything worked out just fine (at least on the second day, when I attended).So basically the event consisted of three fashion shows: The opening show with established designers on Friday, the startup design awards on Saturday afternoon, and the closing ceremony with some of the designers from the first day on Saturday evening. As this makes 20 designers in total for Saturday, I decided to split my coverage of the event into two posts and I'm starting off with the first startup designers:
Hugo Deblende is a Belgian designer who worked with print and futuristic textures. I especially liked the jacket in the first picture, and the cape in the last one.
Enora Hiernaux, who is from Belgium as well, came up with a really feminine collection with pastels and pleats, but also some more elaborated textures that gave her looks a sporty touch. I totally fell for the pleated coat and the grey knit top. Therefor I'm quite happy that she turned out to be the winner of the Startup Designer Awards as her prize is a sponsored collection for JBC that will be available in 165 stores of the brand. I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled for the collection and tell you all about it as soon as it's available.
The Belgian Bastien Sebillot came up with a more rocking collection of which I adored the tulle skirt/leather jacket combination! Just like the other designers, he had a signature texture to his clothes as well.
ASSIAKARA by Assia Kara
When it comes to the colours, Assia Kara's collection perfectly matches the ongoing 70s trend. However she had some very unique details in her looks as well, as for example the plastic skirt or the cork shoes which I really liked.
BY SIEBENALER by Nathalie Siebenaler
The first Luxembourgish designer on the runway that day, was Nathalie Siebenaler. I had met her on several occasions so I was particularly curious to see her collection. Also because so far she was only known for her silk scarfs. For the Fashion Days Luxembourg however, she created a wonderful collection of wedding and evening gowns of which I loved all the dresses that had her signature print motives on them. The last one with the neckholder detail has got to be my favourite and I'm seriously considering asking her to create my wedding dress once I'll be getting married.
MANALENA by Maddalena Oliva
Right after Nathalie's show I could enjoy the collection of another well-known Luxembourgish designer, namely Maddalena Oliva. I don't think I have to introduce her, as I have been wearing her clothes in this and this post and I already showed you her fall/winter collection here.
NINOCHKA by Ninon Teytaud
The collection by French Ninon Teytaud has got to be my favourite collection of the evening. I am really not into this whole print thing and I haven't worn dots in ages, but her collection was simply the most impressing one, maybe because of the cool sunnies she gave her models. Definitely a label to watch!
LEKORI by Francine Faleu
The last looks I'm gonna show you in this post are by another French designer, Francine Faleu. As you can see she worked a lot with patterns and I truly fell for the tartan multilayered ruffle dress with the gorgeous v-cut at the back. Can I please have it straight from the runway?
