Vanessa Seward showed her fall/winter 2016/2017 collection on March 8, for Paris Fashion Week.
The show premiered at Paris’ Théâtre du Châtelet. The same place where Seward created costumes for Michel Legrand’s musical “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.”
Seward’s small fashion label is growing bigger and bigger by the day with store locations in over 10 countries. Her key to success: extremely wearable pieces made for real life. Seward’s designs are sophisticated and chic. She produces clothing that women can see themselves wearing.
The fall collection channeled the ‘70s in its ensembles. Models sported cuffed pants, high necklines and flowy dresses. The looks consisted of belted jumpsuits, silk blouses tucked into A-line midi skirts and high-waisted pants. Seward also incorporated a lot of gorgeous long outerwear pieces, perfect for the chilly winter months. The show was retro with a modern twist.
Seward pays attention to every detail that goes into her designs, even down to the perfect shoe. Models glided down the runway in platform sandals and leather knee-high boots. Seward was wearing the sandals herself during the show. “They’re really comfortable,” Seward told Vogue.
