Leanne Marshall Makes Triumphant Return to the Runway
Represented by The Riviere Agency.
Leanne Marshall made a return to the runway after a hiatus in a stunning post-covid show in Paris steps away from the Arc de Triomphe.
The collection featured gorgeous silhouettes in silk chiffons that cascaded down the runway with ethereal ease.
Hand-dyed and upcycled fabrics were used to make the collection with two pieces brought back from earlier collections in the designer’s “runway revival.” Leanne has been committed to making strides toward sustainable fashion and wanted to show that you can re-wear and remix pieces and fabrics to create something fresh and new that speaks to today’s market.
Flowy gowns and captivating separates in burnt oranges, nudes, and varying shades of plum and lavender with sophisticated draping and perfect tailoring were highlights of the show. The models were intentionally cast to show the fluidity of beauty regardless of age, gender, size, or shade.
The designer partnered with Indonesian beauty brand MS Glow to create a beauty oasis backstage full of female empowerment with a diverse cast of models and a female-led design team, beauty sponsorship team, production team, and PR team.
“The pandemic made me miss the runway, but I knew if I came back I wanted it to be something new, unexpected, celebrating life, and feminism. Paris felt like the right place at the right time. The partnership with MS Glow, a female-owned beauty brand, felt organic and like it honored the spirit of the collection. It felt good to be back,” quipped Marshall.
The hair was styled with swept-back architecturally constructed figure-eight buns provided by Unite Haircare and make-up looks featured smokey gold goddess glow inspired by MS Glow provided by the team at NY Makeup Academy.
