A body hugging, sensual collection evolves, showcasing her signature cutting methods, which transform evening dresses in comfortable yet powerful designs. The collection combines luxurious fabrics with dramatic shapes and push the boundaries of evening wear with distinct female Power.
Wrapped turtleneck sequin gowns and short dresses in velvet printed tulle are mixed with voluminous wool trousers and tunics. The collection is covered in Materials with strong visual and haptic textures. Shiny velvets, glossy metallics, soft wools and heavy sequins intensify the sensual feel of the collection. Coloured velvet and glitter printed tulle playfully integrate transparency.
Strong, bold reds and silver in contrast to blush blues and feminine bordeaux create a strong but a sensual colour palette.
For her AW18 presentation Paula collaborates with experimental Jazz Singer Laura Totenhagen who will set female empowering poets to music.
Her Live performance together with a strong, diverse cast of Models of Linden and STAUB model agency, will celebrate female sensuality and power throughout.
