Fashion week in Paris ends today, and yesterday was one of the major fashion shows, as Valentino showed their ready-to-wear autumn and winter collection for 2016-2017. Valentino is always a guarantee of great inspiration for wedding dresses, and this year was no exception Their biggest inspiration was Africa, which the beautiful patterns and layers of carrying heavily influenced by. It is so not as a single all-white dress on the catwalk, but in turn pointed the collection over to the dark nude shades are going to manifest itself in fashion – and perhaps also in wedding dress world.
There has been some criticism of the show subsequently, because it bears so strong inspiration from Africa and at the same time almost only white models who wore their dresses. Criticism is real, and we are rooting for greater diversity in the models on the catwalk (all parameters) next time.
