Discovering the FW13 Dolce&Gabbana Womenswear collection

Although i have been working in Swide for 4 years, i always get emotional before the show, as though it was my first time! My day usually starts 4 hours before the show backstage at the Metropol Theatre. The creative director of the design team meets me to explain the concepts, mood and details of the collection. I in the mean time start thinking about how to explain them to our Swide readers. This is the board with all the looks from the show. The general mood of the show is Romantic Baroque.

After the initial meeting, we go to see the actual clothes to view the details and craftsmanship in every item.  As you’ve already seen, the FW13 collection is amazing! I can’t wait to tell you all its secrets on Swide.

While he was explaining the details of the collection to me he was visibly emotional. Its always lovely to see someone so passionate about their work.

In the backstage the atnosphere is electric, as the show is looming, but if you look around, there is always something funny going on. Here Ben Taylor, one of our Swide editors, is persuing the backstage with a camera taped to his hat. I wonder what its for??

My Break

The first portion of the collection was centered on the baroque easthetic with magnificient embroidery.

The second part was obviously romantic.

In a collection which looked at the craftsmanship traditions of the past, Dolce&Gabbana found a space for the craftsmanship of today.

As with the men’s collection, for FW13 Dolce&Gabbana have introduced a well loved yet sometimes forgotten type of outerwear

The romantic element of the collection was embodied in the needlepoint roses.

The highly anticipated spectacle of the Dolce&Gabbana fashion show did of course not disappoint.
