If you have ever admired Grace Jones style like I do, it now actually really exists, just ask Imane Ayissi and read this by Yrina Anon. Please don’t confuse the title Grace Jones hasn’t passed away in life or in style.
Fashion designer Imane Ayissi is a name reference in the Parisian universe of world fashion, the Cameroon born designer solely by his talent and work, was able to climb to the apex of the garment industry, Wednesday, January 23, 2013 the elite of Parisian fashion once again gathered in the magnificent Salle Erard in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris, to attend his new winter collection 2013-2014 in honor of “Grace Jones” the sassy artist known all over the world for her vocal skills, her modeling career and her androgynous silhouette, who in the past has made the heydays of Hollywood playing in a number of iconic film score aside great actors like Schwarzenegger “Terminator” or Eddie Murphy “Boomerang”.
Upon entering this grand room with a chic unique, we are immersed in a cozy atmosphere with dimmed lights, by the grace of these beautiful chandeliers installed on many mirrors covering the entire room, all in a beautiful scenery like these old tapestries.
Taking place on the chairs very comfortable, the people tumble gradually, with in the front rows, some important personalities from the world of fashion, time also for a crowd of photographers with their cameras to take position, the fashion creator, makes us wait to dazzle us even better.
Flash of light and the parade begins, beautiful mannequins perched high on their heels, arrive on scene, unveiling a rolling gait. A real show itself to our eyes with outfits as beautiful as each other, in effect, a dozen beautiful dresses and suits made with noble materials such as silk, crepe or chiffon, and some dresses entirely transparent and highly original, merely tickle our senses. Black is the main color of outfits presented, with touches of color such as red or pink. All this to remind us of the theme of the parade lecture, namely a tribute to “Grace Jones” with in the background, some of her best titles like: “La vie en rose” or “Slave to the rhythm” that punctuate the parade march to perfection.
We cannot forget the participation in the parade of this great fashion muse: “ Rebecca Ayocco” former muse of Yves Saint Laurent in the 80s, much anticipated, she will receive a round of applause during her two passages on stage, making us admire her very particular walk, a breakneck pace, which for once embodied to perfection the artist Grace Jones; it was also a conclusion to this magnificent parade, rich in style, with the arrival at the end of the master of haute couture craft Imane Ayissi for the greatest satisfaction of all.
It is finally in the quietude of a room emptying bits by bits , as aficionados of haute couture flabbergasted, had much to say, that Imane peacefully, satisfied with a job well done, agreed to some shots and interviews to reveal that his work was the result of “6 months of work” and that his inspirations are different each time, including “tap into the wealth of each continent of the world” to end up on words of deep humility, advocating the fact that “it is essential to help, to support each other’s without expecting too much from others”
Now, only one question is nagging our mind: “when is the next show Imane?
