Pavoni Spring 2013

As awe-inducing as a first look can be, Pavoni made a case for Canadian fashion with it’s Spring 2013 opener from a collection entitled, “Versailles.” We think Anna Dello Russo would approve.
Featuring intricately layered lace, jewel-encrusted silk, glistening gold and beautiful beadwork, the craftsmanship behind the baroque details of the dresses speaks volumes of the work required for such elegant design.

Hemlines ranged from short and flirty to long and training, and a few looks required the models to actually take note of each other before passing, hoping the tulle would make it the width of the runway. One of the most spectacular pieces was a navy-lace detailed shoulder and arm that blended seemlessly into a cream gown complete with layers upon layers of tulle.

The presentation alone seduced, with a golden gate and floral arrangements as the backdrop and 17th century-sounding music as ambiance. Models sauntered along the runway in a fashion fit for the Versailles nobility, and all models came together at the end in almost Marie Antoniette-like poses.

Not to be outshone, the Pavoni woman exudes confidence, poise and mystery, but how does she sit down in that?
