It was a new day at Schiaparelli where Daniel Roseberry, a 33-year-old designer from Texas, made his debut at the storied fashion house. As the looks hit the runway, the artistic director stationed himself at a desk in the background where he sketched in real time. It may have been his first time ever designing couture, but Roseberry proved he’s hardly a novice when it comes to the art of swoon-worthy gowns.
Featuring 30 looks, the collection went big on volume with billowy sleeves and dramatic ruffles and big on color with striking oranges, reds, and pinks. There were ballgown skirts and bras, sparkling crystal tassels, and colorful silk headpieces. But it was the two finale gowns complete with the dramatic cloud-like flair that proved Roseberry is one to watch in the couture world.
