Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 03, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Acclaimed designer, architect and artist, Jordy Fu is delighted to have debuted her first haute couture fashion collection at the upcoming Arab Fashion Week in Dubai, UAE. Her signature line "J By Jordy" of custom-tailored gowns opened the proceedings for the day and hit the runway, on 2nd November 2015, at 1.30pm, in the Park Hyatt Hotel, Dubai.
“This is the realization of my childhood dreams. As a child, I’d make paper clothes for my dolls and fantasized about them walking on a catwalk wearing my creations. After 15 years in architecture and 30 years of art, I’ve arrived,” Jordy explains. When asked why Arab Fashion Week for her debut collection, she affirmed: “Dubai is the centre point connecting east and west, and an architectural stage, so it’s the perfect place to showcase my new collection, as it was inspired by the traditional Chinese paper cutting technics and mixed with the most contemporary architectural forms.”
Jordy’s collection took the runway by storm, as she presented her White Nebula Collection for Spring/Summer 2016. This brand new haute couture line features 20 romantically styled, sculptural dresses, inspired by the ethereal and awe-inspiring White Nebula. Featuring a colour palette of pure clean white, J By Jordy takes an abstract form, translating the luminescent glow and undulating movement of the clouds and glistening stars into wearable and distinctive luxury fashion pieces.
“Fashion, for me, is architecture. It's three-dimensional and it has a very close relationship to us. I don't see clothes as emanating from flat fabrics; they are living, breathing beings that take form. My collection blends art and architecture with fashion, full of movement and sensation.” – Jordy Fu
Arab Fashion Week ran from 31st October to 2nd November 2015, under the banner "Royal Signature – Where Art Meets Fashion."
