Even though I got to check out Caroline Neron’s Spring 2012 LGFW pre-show walkthrough, nothing could prepare me for the joy that was about to follow. The joy of a campy, yet gorgeous spectacle of floating chiffon, cascading body jewels, and ethereal headpieces, with models sauntering and gliding down the runway – giving Victoria’s Secret models a run for their money.
“Spring/Summer 2012 collection emerges from the divine nature of water, air and earth. Silk, leather, wood, metal and crystals come to life in a modern and sophisticated alliance, designed by Bijoux Caroline Neron“. As I shared with one of the ladies at the show – this is how I want to look at my wedding – dripping in diamonds, while a wind machine gently tousles my hair. Ok, not really…but the look of a shimmering goddess was so tempting, that I seriously wished I had more occasions for this kind of opulence.
As some of you already know, I am a huge fan of Caroline Neron’s jewellery line. The one piece by Neron that I own, never fails to get me a compliment, and a “where did you get it?”. Well, pretty soon, the brand will have 14 stores across Quebec, with plans to expand across Canada and internationally (in 2012-2013), so more people can get in on the action. And after attending her Spring 2012 show, I seriously cannot wait until we (the shopaholics of Toronto) get a store of our own.
For the video of the show (and trust me, you want to see it), please go to the FDCC website. Enjoy!
