Paris, France – After a very noticeable absence from the couture scene in Paris, the grand couturier Maurizio Galante made his return with an intimate display of his work. The presentation was the perfect setting for showing off his exquisite skills in construction.
Galante focuses his attentions on the upper portion of the silhouette. He has crafted refined and tailored jackets. They have the expertly crafted and placed folds of fabric for which the couturier is so well known. Hundreds of hand-made flowers have been placed on one jacket while hundreds of even smaller one have been created especially for the purpose of another one.
The grand couturier also used the occasion to present his jewelry creations. They are based on the DNA of his haute couture. Together, they made for a lovely evening of taste and savoir-faire.
