Frank Sorbier used just two designs and stunning visual effects to narrate a medieval French fairytale on the runway at Paris last week. The Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2012/2013 collection retold the 17th century story, Donkeyskin, a widowed king set on marrying his own daughter, who escapes his clutches by demanding a series of impossible gowns, the colour of the sky, moon or sun. “The collection is a bridge between the past, the present and what the future could be,” explained Franc, who had teamed up with software giant intel for the high-tech side of the project.
