    One of the most difficult places to "get in" to the fashion fray, it's even more so to make a splash as this relatively young Aussie designer did with his Paris début. I think it's a focused collection, strong yet feminine but not divisive since he avoids girly and demure. Whatever opinion is... never let it be said that this guy doesn't wield a mean scissor. :blink:

    :woot: xopher,:buzz: your idea on this collection is so right, and on the exact point, its amazing. I was there at martin's show and have some -I think much better- pictures to share with you, erhhhhh :innocent: when i have some time to edit the stills :blush: :ninja:

    I must say, his work -which I saw unbearably close and in detail- was very well tailored, almost couture standards. I also loved the show "location" it was totally cosy and private, but the important American department stores were all there. He's a guy, I think -and hope- that we will hear more from sweet, hardworking Martin Grand in the near future.

    Great talent spotting again ;)
    Thanks

    as promised, my very own takes from Martin's collection, here you can see some of the decor of the space where the show was held, loved the colours of the antique sofa 'environment' and the fresh bouquet of roses (I was sitting right opposite the vase & the mirror)

    Go for it. B) Your pictures are always clear and focus on the clothes, not the models or the backdrop. :flower:
