yesterday on August 1st, 2012 another Liz Malraux Design fashion-show took place in the hotel Atlantic Kempinski, Hamburg from 18:00 pm - 19:00 pm [UTC+01] where me and my mother had our seats in the first row again.
The designer presented her new fall/winter 2012-2013 collection and dedicated this show to the 25th anniversary of her fashion-label, so the show was introduced by 25 years LMD fashion. For the first time in the history of fashion some of the designer's clients brought out their favourite LMD clothes and presented them very sovereign on the catwalk.
After that the main fashion-show took place: in five rounds Liz Malraux's models present her new collection.
The designer who was once called The Coco Chanel from the Alster [lake in Hamburg] by a fashion-journalist, opts for crocodile leather combined with lacquer, she called one of her creations outfit-bag, which means that the jacket is well coordinated with the handbag in colour and material we got to know from the label Hérmes, and black in different varieties, classically combined with white (furthermore pearl) and rose quartz, she also present her version of the little black dress which is a must-have for every woman. The classical black colour becomes a sexy basic in the LM-fashion and makes the sporty style luxurious.
In her fashion-show Liz Malraux also motivated her clients and audience to be courageous enough to wear and combine more colours. She added the colours black and quartz to the classic gamout of colours. On the one hand the LMD fall and winter will be dominated by so called non-colours [subdued colours] but on the other hand the play with contrasts is very important, so the retro-fashion was reborn in the colours garnet and graphite.
The material dominating the season is (except from leather and lacquer) rope also combined with leather. Classical clothes like the skirt have become an important separate part with its extravagant cut. Artful separate parts are also very important at LMD, the designer herself once said: "You shouldn't take fashion to perfect and serious" because no one and nothing is perfect in this world. You should be easy-going with fashion and have fun with it. Extravagant accessoires should conceal every figure.
All in one LMD's new collection keeps its couture, feminine touch and timelessness. Fashion in broadary, cocktail-dresses and material-mix have been accompanied by exotic music.
LMD fashion twice in Hamburg (Alstertal Shopping-Cente/Neuer Wall 50) or online.
