Pierre Garroudi wows at Fashion Week with Royal Collection!

Saturday night,19th February 2011 was a packed house as Pierre hosted his Royal themed collection to an impressionable audience, consisting of fashion journalists (Elle, Vogue, The Telegraph and Blow PR), photographers and fashion bloggers.
Pre-show, backstage was oozing with excitement as photographers and illustrators were happily snapping or sketching away as hair,make-up,clothes and accessories was being prepared. Pierre’s demeanor before the show was cool and calm, a true professional.
Delicious cupcakes made by The Alice House were given to guests upon arrival and the audience were kept waiting in suspense has DJ Marcus J provided a mix of dance and house music.
As the spotlights were switched on in Pierre’s own gallery based in the back streets of London Bridge, the audience gushed as the self-constructed runway illuminated -he's quite the handy man!!
This did not seem like your typical Royal themed event, with purple the themed color of choice. Rebellion was definitely the attitude of choice! These queens were on a posing mission and did not care who was watching.
The collection boasted beautiful Haute Couture pieces using silk, cotton and tulle made into intricate dresses using his signature fabric-folding technique, with shoes and accessories to match. The highlights of the show included the amazing purple hair wigs featuring a bird’s nest, a castle and crucifix created by the talented Michael Barnes and Vicky Lord. The show closed with the mother of all the queens, giving cheeky poses as she strutted wearing along tulle skirt, with ruffles and a curly purple wig with a crown on her head.
It was a great night for all involved and Pierre would like to extend his gratitude to everyone that came to see his show and to all his team, models and interns for all their hard work.
A special thanks goes to Coco Lee (production director) Emma Harriet Wright (production assistant) and Magdalena Marciniak (stylist/restyling shoes)

  1. Oh Wow!
    The collection expresses a palpable sense of exuberance and passion. It seems to look forward to the future, but with a nod (and a wink) to the past.
    The hair-dos are like Marie Antoinette via the Sixties beehive, reinterpreted for a sci-fi flick. Very youthful and fun.
    I like the silhouettes and colors, and the way the clothes fit the body.
    The colors are fantastic. Great job, Pierre.
