Paris: Goga Ashkenazi, creative director of Vionnet, expertly manipulated fabrics in an effort to evoke the spirit of a dancer – American expat Isadora Duncan of the late 19th-century to be exact. Sheer was the order of the day, producing fluid movement and showing off seductive garter belts. Ashkenazi also referenced ‘curves’ as being a key element to the collection which could be seen in the structured ovoid-shaped outerwear and wrestling belts. Gladiator boots and leather backpacks with harness straps blended warrior with Goddess as models walked the catwalk to the tune of Bjork’s “Hunter”. – Deirdre Pérez
