On 21 January 2019 La Metamorphose Gawkowska & Szczęsna presented their latest collection, Eden Gardens at the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. On the catwalk arranged in the beautiful interiors of the Grand Ballroom at the Intercontinental Le Grand Hotel models presented 26 dresses made from muslin, silk taffeta and noble wool combined with French laces and hand-sewn beads, Swarovski crystals and custom-made appliques in the shape of flowers and butterflies.
The Eden Gardens collection demonstrated how wonderfully a woman can mature and change together with experiences and emotions, how she can delight and be constantly rediscovered.
– Flowers accompany us throughout our life – they add a special touch, fragrance, positive emotions and joy. A woman is like a flower herself – she blossoms in her femininity, she can emanate with beauty, she can share it with others, she can hypnotise with her scent and she can become reborn and blossom again when the world hurts her and when difficult times come. Against all odds, she is born again – like our gardens blossom every spring – said Małgorzata Szczęsna after the show.
After last year’s shows in Cannes and Monte Carlo, participation in the Paris Fashion Week is another step in the development of the La Metamorphose brand.
– Going back to Paris means fulfilling our dreams as well as private and professional goals. It’s a symbolic return to a place where, together with our grandma, we started our adventure with fashion. It was here that, as children, we observed and learned what feminine beauty and elegance were. Now we came back to Paris to tell our story and show this beauty as we, La Metamorphose, interpret it. We are very happy that the audience liked our story so much – Ewa Gawkowska summed up the show.
