"Fascinated by the ever-fascinating queen of France, regardless of many ugly accusations against her of many things that she never did or said, I unreservedly admire her for her innocence, her elusive quality called natural charisma, and her boldness to use ostentatious fashion as a tool to spread her fame around the French court. This 12-piece collection aims to capture and glorify the ultimate beauty of the forever blooming figure of the history of Versailles - Marie-Antoinette." - Vicki Victoire GV Miao -
After 6 months of preparation and hard work, the big moment to announce La Mode by GV Miao’s Fashion Project of the Year 2015 has finally come, ta-da! Following the success of the first ever New York Asian Fashion Week Extravaganza 2014 - fashion show, this year I want to give Paris, the most prominent fashion capital among the Big Four a try.
With great honor, our alluring, sumptuous, and well-thought-out reine mythique : l'éternelle épanouissante Marie-Antoinette (Faraway Queen: the Forever Blooming Marie-Antoinette), from head to toe has been chosen to kick off Tiffany's Fashion Week Paris Season 4, a platform for emerging young designers from all over the world to showcase their talents on the runway at Paris Fashion Week in the form of competition on October 4 (save the date!). Initiated and themed by me and brought to life by the handpicked Hong Kong couturier Suu Ho teamed up with milliner Angel Wong, this Marie-Antoinette-inspired collection, painstakingly created and with its own unique character, is the modern interpretation of the everlasting fashion icon of the 18th century Europe from an Asian perspective, the glamest and exoticest representation like nothing else paying tribute to the legendary last queen of France.
The 12 exquisitely embellished and hand embroidered corset gowns with indulgent layers of sassy lace and chiffon meet their respective charismatic, whimsical, and extravagant fascinators maximally adorned with elaborate ornaments, feathers, and beaded blossoms that remind the Petit Trianon, perfectly paired and matched and ornate jewels to reach unprecedented levels of sheer ethereal beauty and decadent luxury. In the meantime, let’s enjoy a sneak peek at 3 of them conveying a multi-faceted Marie-Antoinette: an innocent, vulnerable, and pastel young princess; a majestic queen in her expensive leather pannier dress that swishes and sways with her every move; and an enchanting and desirable social butterfly rocking every late night party at the Château de Versailles.
