New vendors are ready to shine at their first The Couture Show.
It took half a century, but this year Lebanon-based jeweler Yeprem Chakardemian, who launched his brand in 1964, will finally make his Couture debut.
Chakardemian’s unique designs, done mostly in white diamonds and 18-karat gold, heavily focus on the idea of adornment — whether on the hands, ears or wrists.
At the show, Chakardemian will present his intricate pieces, which incorporate diamond designs that replicate flowers, leaves, snakes and other fantastical, talismanlike designs. The avant-garde pieces, which range from $2,800 to $160,000 retail, are not for the fashion faint of heart. Case in point: Rihanna recently wore Yeprem’s finger-encasing rings to the 2014 Met ball.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
