Marie Linker debuts her label
Designer from Down Under Shows Radiant Collection of Gowns During Paris Fashion Week
Marie Linker debuts her label, L’Elegante, internationally with a stunning collection of eveningwear.
Paris, France (October 1, 2018) — Australian fashion designer, Marie Linker, showed her elegant eveningwear label, L’Elegante, for the first time internationally this on the runway in Paris during fashion week in collaboration with Oxford Fashion Studio.
The Sydney-based line paraded their latest creations of gowns and luxurious formal wear throughout a ballroom filled with fashion industry guests eager to view her work for the first time outside of Australia. Designer Marie Linker’s Spring/Summer collection, the Elegance collection, exuded pure romance and love with luxurious red silks and fairytale-esque pastel floral appliques. The collection also included hand-designed, dyed, and embroidered fabrics with Swarovski crystal embellishments and French lace. Bright, happy colors reflected the designer’s intentions like red for passion and crystal for glamour and femininity.
Beautiful clothes were always an important part of Marie Linker’s life, and she was excited to bring her creative vision to life on the runways of Paris. Her past travels to Paris, Milan, London, and New York inspired her work as a designer and led Marie Linker to develop a skill for choosing luxurious materials and embellishments, which has come full circle this season through her runway presentation.
Special Occasion wear became the basis of L’Elegante whose designs could easily be seen on any red carpet or gala event. With a gown for every personality, this latest L’Elegante collection consisted of statement-making accents like thigh high sexy slits, Swarovski embellishments, keyhole cutout necklines, and beautifully draped chiffons.
Marie Linker’s romantic and feminine style resonated with the audience as each look made its way across the catwalk. Slate greys, sky blue, and pastel pinks softened the passionate reds, whites, and full crystal looks while three dimensional floral and bow appliques brought girly touches into the elegant silhouettes.
Marie Linker wished to introduce L’Elegante to the globe with this collection hoping that her vision of romance and femininity can be passed on to the many women of the world and inspire women of all ages and sizes.
