Dubai-based fashion designer, Furne One (pronounced “Oh-ney”) of Amato Couture closed Style Fashion Week Spring / Summer 2014 Collection at Event Deck at L.A. LIVE on Thursday, March 14, 2014, during LA Fashion Week.
Originally from Philippines, Furne’s a regular on the catwalk at international fashion weeks including London, Dubai, Miami, New York and Los Angeles. Amato Couture has been seen on celebrities from Katy Perry and Heidi Klum to Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger and Nicki Minaj.
Furne wowed Angelinos with his inspiration from Marie Antoinette’s (The Queen of Haute Couture) ostentatious court gowns accentuated with the traditional Geisha style accessories. The entire collection seemed to have escaped from a fairy tale.
The designer sent his Marie-Antoinette-Models down the runway wearing maiko tabi socks with okobo and zori footwear. The bow-like obi belts delicately wrapped around the back of the dress seemed as the most intricate part of the gown. The geisha glam was infused with shironuri makeup and gravity-defying powdered hairstyles. The grand finale showcased a typical 18th-century spring pastel colored couture dresses from fairly neutral favouring a light apricot shade, lime green, soft pink and pale yellows adorned with shimmering beadwork and gorgeous floral lace print designs.
Guests watched breathlessly as the mesmerizing creations of this incredibly talented designer floated ethereally down the catwalk.
