CarMen MarC ValVo A perfect embodiment of dark, alluring, and elegance, Carmen Marc Valvo’s Fall 2013 collection was a brilliant spectacle. Inspired by “dark shadows, moonlit sonatas, baroque scrolls, and rock and roll”, he unveiled his line on February 8th at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Throughout the show, we saw a combination of separates, cocktail dresses, and beautiful gowns. Fitted, feminine silhouettes dominated the runway. Satin, leather, lace, fur and intricate crystal beading elegantly worked in harmony to produce dark yet romantic looks. Sheared mink and feathered foxes, along with leather square tile and baroque embroidery, only amplified the collection. The color palette consisted of black as well as deep shades of plum and pink that really stood out on the runway and made a major impact.


Hair and makeup were feminine yet edgy. Hair was pulled back in the front, and down loose in the back. Bold red lips complimented the deepcolored outfits quite well. Some looks included elbow-length black leather gloves, while others incorporated belts to accentuate the waist. Mary Janes, ankle strap pumps, and ankle boots completed the looks. Carmen Marc Valvo delivered yet another astonishing collection. His designs created a sense of mystery and wander, while being passionate and charming. TexT: Zoha MeMari PhoTos: seManT Jain, Ph.D.
