Tonight I will be attending the runway show for the Furne One Fall 2012 Collection at Style Fashion Week LA. But before moving on to Fall, I wanted to share Furne One’s Spring 2012 Collection with you.
Prior to last October’s Style Fashion Week LA show, I frankly had never heard of Furne One. So when the runway show was added to the schedule midweek, I didn’t pay much attention to it. I was already scheduled to attend the the show prior to Furne One’s, so I figured it would be interesting to check out! Boy was I in for a surprise!
In 1994, Furne One, a native of the Phillipines, won the Mega Magazine Young Designers Competition with the prize being a trip to Paris. He used the opportunity to train in Paris and then on to New York for an apprenticeship with famed designer Josie Natori. Eventually moving to Dubai, he opened his own fashion house, catering to a clientele of wealthy Arabic women and expats.
Furne One’s Haute Couture skills are evident in his meticulously draped and heavily embellished gowns and his love for theatricality imbues his collections with a sense of fantasy and drama. With celebrities Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry already wearing his gowns, Furne One is ready to launch his collections to a US Market. Get ready for a brilliant, over the top collection that will truly make you ooooh and ahhhhh!
