Paris? Check! London? Been there! New York? Done and dusted. Now time for Shanghai.
If you haven’t guessed already, then it is about time you get on board. It is the time that makes you feel like Christmas has come early… Victoria’s Secret fashion show!! Felt like only yesterday when we were watching the angelic performance on our screens. It will be the first time the worldwide famous show will take place in Shanghai, China. With it previously taking place in fashion capitals such as New York, Cannes and Los Angeles, amongst many others, the countdown to the runway is officially on. Save the date (and your money) for 29.11.17.
What is it we have got to get excited about? Besides the washboard abs on the models, of course it is about how big the angel wings can get. The creative brains behind the beautiful wings are currently still making sure every little sequin and feather is sewn on to perfection. But it is the collaboration with Balmain that is getting our wings flapping. Magazine Elle France made a statement on VSXBalmain saying “It’s the first French fashion house to collaborate with Victoria's Secret and we cannot wait!”. If we could pick anyone to collab designs with the most glamorous lingerie, has to be said it is the perfect combination. Balmains previous collections have been one to talk about; where every embellishment and gem has been perfection. We challenge you to think of a better collaboration than this. Excuse me, can I book this day off work?
Lais Ribeiro will be a name you will soon see all over your social media and screens. She has been selected to wear the famous fantasy bra, that all angels dream of wearing. The 2017 Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra was custom made by Mouawad, a designer who has designed for the VS collections for numerous years. The bra will be hand set with nearly 6,000 precious gemstones in 18 karat gold, costing around $2 million. Yes, I had to double take that figure as well… Lais will be involved in the collaboration that aims to prove beauty and excellence. Since 2001, Mouawad has been entitled to a solid collaboration with the lingerie retailer VS. They have been triumph of award winning bejeweled creations, making only the best Fantasy Bras, that we all cry with envy to be able to even hold, let alone wear. Lais Riberio, you work that Fantasy Bra on the runway!
Now, who else will be joining Lais in the line up as an angel? Watch this space.
