Lady in Waiting is a beautiful story of an haute couture princess framed in a fairytale-like editorial for Tatler Russia. The magical scenes that could be taken straight from tale art paintings are captured by Bruno Dayan - a photographer who is a specialist in this field. The mystical game of sepia lightning creating shadows on the ethereal sylphs of couture gowns are outlining the intricacy and precision of couture art.

The collaboration between Berlin based artist Amrie Hoffstater and fashion designer Manish Arora has led to the creation of a collection that is a real feast for the eyes.

Hoffstater’s vivid, kaleidoscopic designs are imaginatively combined with Arora’s handmade embroideries and embellishments and the outcome is quite astonishing.

Lately, my fashion inspirations circle around a somehow forgotten but powerful field in fashion’s imagery – illustration. Everything seems to be a lucky coincidence or some kind of unplanned procedure: - starting from the book which broaches the subject of fashion illustration, then a great telephone conversation with a fashion illustrator, and finally with Christian Dior’s Haute Couture tribute to René Gruau – the eminence in fashion illustration.

René Gruau, an outstanding artist with a versatile style based on line signature. He used to describe line as a root of art and significant feature capturing spointeinty, pace, emotions and many more:

“Just a line? But it is the basis of all art, with a single line we can express grandeur, nobility, sensuality, the line synthesises sensations and concentrates knowledge”, René Gruau
