Julien Fournie backstage by the Only Fashion Network OFN
Julien Fournie was influenced by great explorers who traverse human history and the emancipation of women. Colonists, pioneers, or visionaries navigate the wild. They disobey social codes, their curiosity about the world, their desire for freedom and their search for their own truth. This exquisite Haute Couture collection took us on a whirlwind tour to Pre-Columbian cultures, tribes of Africa, the Sahara's Berber and Tuareg arts.
The Julien Fournié woman is strong, and elegant. Outside the male ideals that contributed to predation, by colonization or evangelization, their conquests are proclaimed at the expense of their lives, mutual exploration, recognition of distinction, mutual assistance.
The French Haute Couturier, masters the female silhouette, around more casual attire, adorned with, feathers, animal prints, lace and talisman-like embroideries. Forms are often equipped with several strap belts, bags or bandoliers, essential equipment for the explorers of new territories. A collection that flows through time and marvels over the huntress, the female adventurer, and embraces feminine strength.
