I also have a deep, deep appreciation for craftsmanship and details ie. beading, fabric development and technique. I love a great t-shirt and a pair of jeans, but a John Paul Ataker gown steals my heart.
The entire collection was inspired by the art of fishing, sailing ropes, knitting and weaving artisanship. The collection showcased the merging of different materials and techniques to create a certain look. My fav look was the black gown with the accordion pleated overlay. The skirt was large with a slim bodice. The accordion overlay was a big nod to the fishing theme and I felt like the dress was a seashell.
The shoes were designed by John Paul Ataker with metallic cords and ropes. The gold details on the booties were rope laces. The model’s makeup was barely there and promoted the “ Natural is beautiful theme”. Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls graced the catwalk with fishing ropes tied into their hair which added a regal element to each and every look.
