Wonderfully elegant, multifacetted and totally wearable – the Spring/Summer 2020 creations of the Berlin-based prêt-à-porter fashion brand Maisonnoée.
It was all about clear cuts, different textiles and textures with some fresh colorful accents and delicate patterns.
My personal impression from the collection was well represented through the slogan, printed on the last dress of the collection – #courage. Have courage to dress yourself like you want to. With Maisonnoée “dress to impress” slogan becomes another meaning – dress to impress yourself, love yourself, be comfortable in your skin and your clothes.
The Maisonnoée did a real show from the runway. First of all the great music involved and then all the beautiful models of all age and skin tones.
I was especially happy to see the girls strolling down the runway together with a child and a baby carriage. As a mom of the toddler I’m feeling especially involved, because who said that mothers and their children can’t be fashionable?
Another highlight were the girls from this year’s Germany’s Next Top Model – Sayana Ranjan and Simone Kowalski.
I followed the girls on their jorney to the GNTM-final and was extremely excited to see them live on the runway! Chapeau to Maisonnoée for involving them and giving them a chance to work towards their dreams.
The most fascinating part about being a fashion illustrator is to attend the runway shows during the Fashion Week! This time I was invited by the Munich-based designer Irene Luft and just couldn’t resist to come over.
Why is this such an outstanding experience that every Illustrator should make?
The Designer. You can meet the designer behind the outfits. Speak with her/him, understand the thoughts behind the collection
The Outfits. Textile and textures that are more amazing while touching with your own fingertips rather than watching on a photo
The atmosphere. It is something very different to experience the show yourself than watching it on TV or looking at the photos. It’s all about the details – about the location, guests, light, music.. everything!
People. It is awesome to meet new people, celebs or just your potential clients. Have fun!
The Inspiration… to create and draw further illustrations!
The theme of this Show was “Dark City” and Irene created exceptional dresses choosing the bold black color.
I was surprised by the countless textures presented on the runway – beaded sleeves and dresses, layers and layers of tulle and precious embroidery. Dark glamour at it’s best.
The models wore outstanding white lenses to make the iris disappear so it looked a bit creepy, but totally suited to the theme! I saw a few backstage photos, when the models shed a few tears while applying the lenses – and I think I can understand them.
Down below are my sketches fresh from the runway and a few photos.
