Nuits Blanches with August Getty for Fashion Week Spring 2019
August Getty SS19 Couture – Fashion Week
The snow was drifting around the gardens of The Ritz as we strolled into the salon to meet August Getty and watch his models appear one by one in their crystal and snowy looks! It was as if nature had backed his crisp white and shimmering pieces with a statement of their own.
The couture workrooms are back in LA and surely the awards, events and ceremonies of this glittering city are the destination of these couture pieces.
A slender sliver of a dress was entirely made up of shattered mirror fragments scattered across the surface, a filigree white gown had a bell like skirt with a short train, as the model entered the room is swayed gently like an enormous flower.
It was shown over the slimmest of white pants. The draped strapless goddess gown fluttered softly as a blast of icy air swept into the room, but the beauty of this tightly edited collection remained untouched.
This was classic beauty seen through a young designers’ eyes, distilling the looks he wanted and without fuss or clutter. Although not “moving fashion forward” in its own restraint it had a quiet modernity and a subtle sexiness.
Let us see what the coming seasons offer from this talented young man?
