This haute couture collection entitled "Alchemy" is the result of a delicious blend of influences from Ancient Greece and modern Japan. The head and foot jewellery that dresses the models evokes Greek goddesses, while the patchwork of printed dresses recalls a certain repertoire of Japanese embroideries. The famous American dancer Isadora Duncan also gave her name to this model whose pleated design also reminds us of the fashion designer Mariano Fortuny.
