Designer Malan Breton launched his first runway show debut at London Fashion Week this past Sunday at the highly exclusive Freemason’s Hall, showcasing the second portion of the label’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Just last week, Breton showed during New York Fashion week, garnishing high media attention with fashion police’s Nene Leakes closing the show in addition to various other celebrity appearances from Mason Grammar to Tituss Burghess. In London, Breton managed to tone down the setting drastically, maintaining a highly exclusive and private audience of top UK and International editors, press, and VIP attendees. Freemason’s Hall, which holds approximately 250 guests, was the perfect setting with its vintage architectural design, crown molding, beautifully carved entry ways, and stunning sculptures that complimented Breton’s exquisitely embellished creations and couture gowns. The runway show, titled “Psyche” was a pathway into the soul of the House of Malan Breton. Both women and men stepped out onto the runway showcasing the diversity and different forms of talent the designer possesses. Complementing each other effortlessly, models walked out in pant-suits, bold blazers and capes, statement florals, and heavily embellished beading, which made this collection awe inspiring with an original yet cohesive feel. The overall elements of the show created the perfect setting for attendees to enter into Malan Breton’s captivating and magical world. To tie everything together, Breton closed the London show with the beautiful Sharon Rose who sang “Climb Every Mountain” as she gracefully paraded the runway in a silk chiffon printed couture gown while meeting him at the end of the runway.
