Sculptural dresses with exaggerated silhouettes shine out against a darkened catwalk, complete with petals of folded fabric

Initial reaction:

Blown up, sculptural dresses, with pleats and origami layers that enfolded the body to create voluminous – yet feminine – silhouettes.

Flower girls:

From tulip skirts and bright jewel colours to the way that fabric gave the impression of elaborate blossoms, spotlighted against a darkened catwalk the models looked like a garden of flowers by moonlight. Exaggerated shoulders and sleeves resembled blooming foxgloves, whilst one piece was a bell-shaped bluebell, standing away from the body. Elsewhere, the skirt of a white dress became the petals of a rose in graduating hues, from white to peach and finally soft ballet pink. 

Invited guests:

The last show on the week’s schedule, the 15 look collection was the brand’s Parisian couture debut, with sister duo Ece and Ayşe Ege invited to show after previously only presenting ready-to-wear.
