Setting the Stage…

…Happy day…I’m very excited to introduce, Alex, from the D Pages Blog.  D Pages is a design magazine made by designers for anyone interested in design. They are devoted to sharing all things cool and beautiful and D Blog is their outlet for sharing design news and tidbits between their monthly magazine publications. Check them out, you’ll be glad you did…and, now, Alex…

A “>video peek at how the show decorated with a million flowers came together.

D PAGES blog is very happy to fill in today for Cabbagerose while she is on holiday. In brainstorming for a post to contribute, I stumbled upon these gorgeous shots from Raf Simons’ Dior couture show and thought they might be a perfect share. So without further ado…

From his childhood home in Normandy where he helped his mother create her English gardens, to his country retreat at Milly-la-Foret where he designed and worked in his own gardens, Christian Dior was known for his passion for flowers. He not only avidly cultivated them in his gardens, they wound their way into the prints, wovens and embroideries of his collections. The icon of couture was also known for his highly structured, architectural approach to clothing – so it seems only fitting that Raf Simons‘ vision for the backdrop of his first Dior Haute Couture show combine these two loves of its founder. Over the course of 4 days, teams of people meticulously covered every wall from floor to ceiling with peonies, goldenrod, dahlias, carnations, delphiniums and roses, transforming the space and transporting the show’s attendees into a lush Alice in Wonderland-like world. Bravo Raf, not only for a fabulous Fall/Winter 2012 clothing collection, but also for envisioning such a magical space in which to present it!
