Backstage at the Turkish-Canadian designer's regal and opulent collection.

In a collection inspired by the Italian Aristocracy, designer Erdem Moralioğlu opened the cover to a fashion storybook inspired by Roman aristocrat Princess Orietta Doria Pamphilj. His characters walked down the runway, adorned with beautifully tailored skirt suits, gowns for both morning and twilight, and jewel-tones of emerald, sapphire, topaz, and amethyst. Billowing bows added a light-heartedness to the collection while Italian-baroque embellishments and high, lace collars emphasized Erdem’s signature flare for drama. Completed by black fishnet veils, they whispered an alluring touch of darkness into this luxurious narrative.
