PATUNA Couture Show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week on July 4th.

“When I thought of my inspiration for this collection, I thought of the greatness of French art, architecture and creativity, which influenced humankind to her foundation. For nearly three thousand years, one may not separate wine as an integral part of French civilization ingrained in French culture at every level. As art, creativity, and genius are woven into the fabric of what is France, naturally, the French made winemaking an art. From this natural flow of thought came my inspiration for the French art of winemaking. I was inspired to express this muse through the colors of grapes, wine, and the shapes of the grapevine.

This collection consists primarily of silks, guipure, velvet & chiffons, and incorporates shapes and looks that are smooth like a grape leaf; strong and structured like the grapevine; and incorporates touches of complex draping like the ripening grapes on the vine. This collection also incorporates arch forms from the vine and lines imitating the long, straight rows of the vineyards. All paintings and volume accessories, such as grape-leaves are hand-made.”
