Dolce & Gabbana, Alta Moda Spring 2015. La Scala, Milano.
Alta Moda, is practically what we say haute coutute. Every year the house of Dolce & Gabbana, raises the stakes and the spring 2015 couture show was a tribute to art. From January 29 until the 31st the Italian fashion house organised a three day event with fashion, opera, ballet dancing, jewellery, glamour and couture.
For the first time, the world famous opera house, La Scala in Milan, hosted a fashion show with the music of Swan Lake, Carmen and The Nutcracker. But the real question was if it is allowed to perform events at this grand venue. The answer was given when the designer duo decided to meet Alexander Pereira, La Scala’s general manager. Imagine their suprise too when he accepted to host the show.
The first day the show started with a presentation of Dolce & Gabbana’s high jewellery, inspired by fruit and flowers. The second day at the women Alta moda, the dresses were decorated with La Scala’s opera posters, crown jewelleries, tuttu skirts, embellished leggings and long velvet capes while most impressive was the famous choreographer and ballet dancer Roberto Bolle who participated at the opening part. Three boy dancers, from child to man, walked the runway, representing Roberto Bolle’s journey from La Scala child prodigy to adult star. The finale of the three day event closed with the Alta Sartoria men’s collection.
