With their wonderful show the designer duo Scherer González took the audience to a fairytale forest full of elves and queens: the models appeared like in a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The models were crowned with very dramatic decoration on their heads, like apples, antlers, branches, flowers and starfish. With their ready-to-wear pieces we could admire some old-fashioned cuts with a modern interpretation, inspired by the twenties and fifties, mostly in earth-colours.
Scherer González really are dressmaking artists; you can see the many hours of work in each and every piece on the runway. Especially the Haute Couture evening gowns were highly impressive, made with shiny, voluminous fabrics. The silhouettes were surprising and unconventional. Very outstanding: a cape that stood up behind the model as if a fierce wind would blow. And another dress had some kind of a snail-shell instead of a train. For accessories, every model wore beautiful gaiters, so pumps and boots looked wonderful old-fashioned.
