Sometimes it takes three to tell the story. The story for the trio
this season takes us into the world of semi-precious stones which for
many of us have symbolic and spiritual meaning. The talisman and the
amulet have always had a special place in the design of on aura tout
vu. This season they have embraced Mother Nature, and in doing so found
a rhythmic, enchanting tale of gem colored gowns, encrusted in the gemstones
themselves. An invincible quicksilver siren followed a floating amethyst
angel. A princess of serenity in a landscape jasper embroidered evening
coat over a chiffon tunic preceded a goddess of wisdom in a short chiffon
dress embroidered in large jade pieces under a jade lace boudoir jacket.
Incandescence is the light of couture, reflected in this bejeweled collection
that paid homage to the spirit of Earth while lifting us above the ground.
