“The look of the show is a little bit inspired by ‘Game of Thrones,’” said hairstylist Orlando Pita. “They are warrior women, but they’re very feminine. They have these waves and braids … and then they have a crown, which makes it kind of tougher. So it’s a mixture.” The models wore gilded jeweled crowns and tiny braids inspired by the looks of the female characters in the popular fantasy HBO series.
The fairy tale inspired runway show, titled ‘A Tale of Fallen Kings‘, which debuted yesterday at Paris Couture Week featured looks that would “capture the opulence and wild beauty of medieval times, and translate it into fiercely elegant feminine silhouettes”. The collection featured ornate ornamental designs, floor-sweeping gowns, elaborate embroidery and beadwork, hooded capelets, a touch of fur, trumpet sleeves and regal velvets.
