Azzedine Alaas couture show on Wednesday — the first by the house in six years — sparked special memories for Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Farida Khelfa, who joined the likes of Daphne Guinness, Nicolas Ghesquireand Stephen Jones in the front row for the event, held at the designers Marais headquarters.

Its a very special place here at Azzedines,” said Bruni-Sarkozy recalling shows here with all the girls, and days and days spent here, sometimes for fittings, sometimes just hanging out.” The singer said she has a new album due out on Oct. 6, and Ill be coming to America to promote it.”

A few rows down, Jean-Paul Goude, who was catching up with Patrick Demarchelier, at one point pausing, mesmerized, to stroke the photographers feral eyebrows, also shared his personal memories of working with Alaa.

I remember when I was living with Farida, one of my great loves, we hung out a lot together and I was very inspired by the fact that he was not only Azzedine Alaa but that he was from the other side of the Mediterranean, like Farida, and that fascinated me,” said Goude, who revealed hes working on a capsule for the Spanish clothing label Desigual. Youll recognize it immediately, it really looks like something out of a commercial of mine, so I dont know if its sellable.”

Fashion curator and historian Olivier Saillard, who in January will join J.M. Weston as artistic, image and culture director, shared some color on what we can expect from him in his new role. I prefer old shoes, from the Thirties. For example, I asked J.M. Weston for these, their Le Chasse model from the Thirties,” he said looking down at his feet. I have always thought, you can dress in different ways, but the most important thing is to have nice shoes.”

Saillard said he plans to continue staging ephemeral exhibitions like the one currently showing at Florences Palazzo Pitti, but I want to focus on my performances alongside my role at J.M. Weston.” A performance around his first creative effort for the house is planned for next June, he said, adding: It wont be a new collection in the conventional sense. My first step will be to focus on the very classic shoes they used to do in the past. Some of them have not been reproduced, others are still produced.”

Another footwear house received a special commission from Alaa for his show, meanwhile. Salvatore Ferragamo sent out a release after the event revealing that it had been contacted by the designer for a special series based on the iconic Indiana pump boot in stretch cotton created by the houses namesake founder in 1925.Read more at:http://www.marieprom.co.uk | evening dresses uk
