Furne One Angels & Demons take over: LAFW 2013
The last show of the week and totally worth it.
This. was. the most AMAZING fashion show I have ever seen. Beautiful is an understatement. Dramatic is an understatement. It's goth, angelic, religiously iconographic, baroque, ornate. A true artist has come through town. I felt honored to have such an artist take our breaths away.
Furne One, a Dubai based couturier, born in the Philippines creates stylized pieces and got his start from winning the Filipino fashion magazine MEGA's fashion designer of the year award. He then went to New York under Natori apprenticeship then went to Dubai to open his own boutique. I dont wanna name drop who clamors for his clothes (Heidi Klum, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj) because he is totally beyond the name game and is known for his shear talent. Get it shear=scissors cause he's a fashion designer??
The show literally took my breath away. I felt like I was in Dante's Inferno, with Furne being my Virgil. The show was more than a show, it was a story, a play, a realm that wanted to stay in forever. All I can say is... I came back from hell, and it was beautiful.
