An event that was covered by a host of fashion blogs was held in May in Dallas. Dolce & Gabbana introduced an interesting twist on their Spring fashion event, with an intimate setting in a cozy loft near the warehouse district and downtown. “Dolce & Gabbana took florid classicism to the limit this season, creating a boldly luxurious collection that reminded fashion fans what “made in Italy” really means.”
We at Inessa Stewart’s Antiques & Interiors had an even closer experience with this inspirational fashion show as we were chosen to furnish antiques, antique style props and antique lighting for the event. When we got a call from a representative of the Dolce & Gabbana New York office, we were both honored and excited; we immediately started assembling a specially selected group of accessories and lighting for the event.
I couldn’t help but notice that the Renaissance antique accessories and antique lighting chosen for the event was beautifully reflected in the entire Dolce & Gabbana Fall Collection, inspired by timeless designs originated by giants in the design field like Michelangelo and Leonardo DaVinci. Of course in our business, we recognize that revivals of classic and timeless styles are common throughout history since Ancient Greece…
We snapped a few candid photos during the event set up plus images of the Dolce &Gabbana Fall Collection. Love the new introductions ~ I think I need to go shopping!
The antique rental business is not new to us, as the film industry in Louisiana and Texas is quite dynamic especially in the last decade. Inessa Stewart’s Antiques & Interiors has been privileged to be part of many films throughout our 21year history. I remember the first film for which we supplied rented antiques was The Adventures of Huck Finn (1993) with Elijah Woods. One of the choices happened to be a Victorian sofa that in the movie appeared in an action scene on a horse-drawn wagon. Well, it fell off the wagon and was a total loss, never to be seen again, but it remains a part of movie history. Many other movies followed, the most recent being a movie with Tom Cruise that is being filmed just down the street from our Baton Rouge store. (I hope Tom comes in for a visit…)
I hope you have enjoyed the photos above. Isn’t it great to see how antique styles ~ in this case Italian Renaissance ~ are inspiring today’s designers? It’s truly a pleasure to see their interpretations and applications in today’s current fashion world!
