Zapardiez's Back to Couture Fashion in NYC!
Celebrity interviewer and CNN iReporter "ALADINO" will attend in her much-anticipated return to Couture Fashion Week, Spanish designer Isabel Zapardiez who will present her latest collection at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday September 15, 2012 in the iconic Grand Ballroom of the world-famous Waldorf-Astoria in New York City.
In her latest collection Isabel Zapardiez invites us into a fantasy world full of her fantastical visions for women and brides. The designer is marking her 10th anniversary as a bridalwear designer in 2012.
To celebrate, she is offering an up-to-date synthesis of her most emblematic creations and the recurrent themes that inspire her, such as the oriental world, vintage appliqué, and classic names such as Balenciaga. The designs feature a fusion of the aesthetics that inspire her, her interests and her view of the world. It is the first time she will be showing a mixed collection on the catwalk, presenting both bridalwear and party dresses.
Ms. Zapardiez's creations are enchanting and feminine, full of her signature cosmopolitan style. Her collection draws on different worlds, ever faithful to her idea that there are as many styles as there are brides. She shows us visions of nymphs and fairies, and glamorous, expressive women.
Ms. Zapardiez has embodied this source of inspiration in several of her pieces, where delicate silhouettes are the predominant feature. Bridal and party dresses are easily shown together, highlighting the concept that it is the attitude and personality of each woman that determines how each dress is interpreted.
As for fabric, the designer's use of appliqué and mikado contrasts with the subtle and ethereal aspect of the muslin, satin, organza, tulle and chiffon, which are sometimes combined with feathers that move with the piece.
Ms. Zapardiez's philosophy is more varied regarding silhouettes, with both tailored and full dresses, in addition to pieces with different lengths. The range of colors is rounded out with subtle tones: whites, pinks and shades of beige and grey.
Subtle, sophisticated women with a distinct personality that fills the catwalk with the charm and energy of Isabel Zapardiez's work.
