My fifth day at LG Fashion Week Beauty by L'Oreal Paris was the last hoorah for this amazing event (I mean there will be other shows, but I really dig my intense week as the FDCC Style Blogger)....I was thrilled to see the designers bring their best and to feel the palpable excitment over the grand finale of fashion week. Now, the obvious choice for best show on day five, I think for a lot of people, including me, was Denis Gagnon. Described as art, this collection was extremely sophisticated and downright different. Tribal, yet somehow extremely luxurious, these garments were complex, riveting and, frankly, pretty awesome ( I will be seriously contemplating purchasing a Denis Gagnon long-fringed purse...).
It is a rarity to come across across something new. Shimmery strands, swinging back and forth in a kind of cantor down the runway: I think that Denis Gagnon is tapping into something entirely other, which brings nothing more than sheer delight to a fashion adorer like me...and, judging by the semi-standing ovation at this closing show, to a lot of other people, too.
