“A labor of love” is the shortest explanation of Peter Dundas collection. It was all in the spirit of when 18th century meets the seventies. The runway took place at the Hotel de Gesvres – private residence in Paris, and the show began at the top of the stairs. Up there, Dundas was standing and greeting the attendees. To explain better his idea for the collection, he included his nieces Iris and Noor into the work and those two were helping he models. From the whole collection, Noor has already found her favorite piece and she revealed it to the media: it was pink fox robe coat, jeans and silk-satin lace-up boot with flowers. The Dundas collection has many of his famous marks: corset bodices, asymmetric trains and vivid colors.
Georgia May Jagger and Natasha Poly were among the famous faces to see on the runway. They were wearing denim dress with embroidery and one with cascading black taffeta train. This may not be for everyone’s taste, but that was the original idea though – wear the Dundas pieces to get noticed. The collection, as he further explained, was ready-to-wear, but with high influence by haute couture. It was Baroque inspired, but with a new sense of what is modern.
For his future endeavors, Dundas said that he plans to partner with retailers and sell online. The pieces of the collection differ and are for everyone’s taste. You can find sequined concert t-shirts, catsuits, beach caftans and naked dresses. Also, the lion image that appears on some of the shirts is a true replica of designer’s tattoo. It all gives a sense of a rock ‘n’ roll direction and boho style. Dundas is well known when it comes to tailoring and frocks, so the blue crystal suit was no surprise.
At the end, he summed up that his golden rule that he lives and creates by is that all women should feel seductive by the clothes they wear, and he designs especially for them. Some of his famous clientele include Beyonce, Emily Ratajkowski and Kim Kardashian West. As some of them told, his brilliance lies into knowing how to make clothes that turn on the young generations.
