Paradise lost. This could be the starting point for the inspiration behind the Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition collection for 2018, to be presented in Paris during Couture Week by appointment, and the images produced to illustrate it — with nature almost overtaking the aristocratic palazzo where such designs could be at home. In a nod to the location, tunics and gowns have a motif that looks like a wrought iron gate. The designer’s precious chiffon designs are enriched with beautiful Liberty-style ramage embroideries, but they also have a playful vibe, such as in the short pink dress with micro pleats and flounces. Ferretti works masterfully with pleats and, in one long black and sleeveless gown, they are so intricately laid out that the effect is almost hypnotic.

(Criss previously starred on “Glee,” another Murphy creation, although they didn’t directly work together.) “I feel like I’ve already won the lottery.” Read more in WWD.com (📸: @lexieblacklock ) #wwdeye #darrencriss #americancrimestory #emmys2018
