Furne One by Amato Couture 2012
Hailing from Amato Couture, designer Furne One made my night (and many others’ nights as well) during his Los Angeles Fashion Week show at the Vibiana in Downtown LA. Started in Dubai, Furne One is known for his intricate and hand crafted gowns that are literally hard to describe in words.
The first model started the show off right; wearing a nude colored body suit, she walked out with metal pieces and lights attached to her outfit–even her shoes were covered in these unique pieces!
I loved the nude body suits covered with beading in different colors and paired with high tan boots. The similar, yet bold colors worked amazingly with models’ skin tones.
A short beaded dress with a scalloped top was my absolute favorite. Tan, covered in crystals, and absolutely flattering, this dress was fit for a young Hollywood starlet.
A green knee length dress with pointed shoulders and heavy floral print detailing over mesh was an absolute show-stopper and when a similar one in white with beading came out, the crowd was in awe.
Peach is predicted to be THE color for Spring, and with Furne One’s collection featuring the color, the line is going to be on every womans wish-list. With detailed bustiers, and ornate dresses with bold lines and cuts, there was a dress for everyone.
Dresses in emerald green, turquoise, creams and more were shown throughout the show covered in floral embroidery, crystals, beading, and more.
Dresses and one pieces with fairy tale detailing such as wings, leaves, feathers, colored stones and crystals gave the show a nature-feel that was beautiful and unique. Models wore frocks reminiscent of birds with feathers made out of different materials and colors. Dangling from the bold shoulders on the pieces was material reminiscent of moss and crystal as well. To add to the fairy-tale feel, wings made of plastic were made to replicate the delicate wings of an insect.
The finale was absolutely stunning. With a nude and crystal decorated bodysuit with arms made of tulle extending into actual “wings”, the dress promoted serious excitement from every one in the audience. It was a masterpiece—a work of art, and much more than fashion, which is what Furne One’s show was all about. His collection was not just full of beautiful and ornate pieces—it symbolized nature, its beauty and what he felt represented this best. I cannot wait to see what this amazingly talented designer has in store for us next.
