Throwback Thursday to Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week!

Throwback Thursday to last year at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week! A highlight for me was hearing one of the most moving pieces of classical music, “Lark Ascending” during the show, in the video clip below!

Greetings from Paris!

At Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Fall Winter 2018, the uplifting strains of Ralph Vaughan Williams’sLark Ascending” played during the presentation of the ethereal designs by Azulant Akora.


 The stirring music was befitting of a collection that proved inspirational, ethereal, and exquisite.

Akron’s presentation was filled with showstoppers including a intricate floral-imbued gown and a royal green dress that was regal and perfectly showcased in the golden, classically gilded room at La Maison Champs Elysées.

info@imaxtree.comWhat was even more impressive about Akora’s collection was that her creations managed to be both dreamy and functional at the same time. Her collection was seamless, yet each silhouette was unique: with shapes alluding to Art Deco or even the resplendent ladies of Gustav Klimt.

Akora emerged onto the Australian fashion scene in 2013 where she was awarded the Australian Wool Fashion Award. She entitled her latest collection AVATAR after the film. Akora stated that her collection’s main theme is that: “ All energy is only borrowed, and one day you have to give it back. In life, everything is about balance; giving back as much as we take and respecting the Earth.”

 Cultural Cocktail Hour  Editor-in-Chief Leticia Marie Sanchez had the opportunity to interview designer Azulant Akora after the show.

When asked about the inspiration behind her collection, the young designer directly addressed her generation, encouraging “Millennial to be more aware of what we do.” Akora revealed, “Fashion has a global voice. Fashion is also conscious and connects people all over the world.” Akora successfully executed her idea of connection and conscious. Her collection resonated with her audience, inspiring each of us to an elevated self.
