The Revival of Leanne Marshall FW22
On March 1, 2022, Leanne Marshall made an epic appearance on the Paris Runway to show their latest work after a long interruption of Covid placed a pause on production. The collection displayed various elaborate flowing gowns that trailed down the runway.
This revival collection encompasses sustainable fashion constructed from hand-dyed and uncycled materials as a way to bring emphasis to how you can re-wear and innovatively intertwine garments.
The intricate tailoring and color palettes emphasize versatility in beauty no matter the age, gender, size, or shade.
With fluidity in mind, the designer collaborated with the Indonesian beauty brand MS Glow as a way to kick off Women’s History Month. Both brands executed this vision by having diverse models walk down the runway, administered by an all-female-led team.
“The pandemic made me miss the runway, but I knew if I came back I wanted it to be something new, unexpected, celebrating life, and feminism. Paris felt like the right place at the right time. The partnership with MS Glow, a female-owned beauty brand, felt organic and like it honored the spirit of the collection. It felt good to be back,” said Marshall.
MS Glow is a female-led brand that was launched back in 2013 and has done numbers while placing importance on empowering women through beauty and personal care. What better way to empower women than for them to work together!
