Sepehr Maghsoudi back from Paris after exhibiting his 16th fashion collection “Light”
After his 15th collection show in Paris last January, fashion designer Sepehr Maghsoudi was present again during the Paris Fashion week of this July 2017.
On July 1, 2 and 3 his latest collection “Light” was presented in a modern building, situated in Le Marais, Paris’ well-known area for fashion professionals.
By showing this 16th collection as an exhibition, Maghsoudi gave his public the opportunity to observe and admire the designs from close by: ravishing handmade designs, showing pure craftsmanship.
Once again, a memory from his Persian childhood was the inspiration for this collection:
“When I was young, we used to play hide and seek in a large field with huge blades of grass.
The tall blades embraced you. Looking up you could still see the sunlight. But amongst the giant stalks there was darkness all around…The body disintegrates, transcends to a different dimension…In these dark times we are searching for light…”
Fairylike, fragile looking designs, made of shiny delicate fabrics, in mother-of-pearl and soft pinks. Earthly colored designs, with authentic prints in powerful geometric patterns that seem to dissolve as they go up. Applications of feathers, ingenious 3D embroideries hovering above the surface, latex treated knitting, darkening halos, massive ceramic collars and masks.
This special exhibition, covered by BBC Persian TV live from Paris, gained international attention and impressed visitors from Germany, London, Russia, California and Brazil:
“You are destined for greatness. Love your work. See you in LA”
“Everything looks amazing and with a close eye for detail!”
“I’ve only seen a small part of your artwork and I’m already mesmerized by it!”
“Amazing work on textures and volumes, a highly pleasant surprise.”
“What an exhibition! I am sure you will move the French fashion lines!“
Paris was the first in line, but now Sepehr is back we can’t wait to see this spectacular collection on show in The Netherlands!
