Paris Fashion Week: Barbara Bui FW 15/16

By: Katie Class

“We first discovered Barbara Bui during our time at AUP and have loved her ever since” Olivia Palermo, an American socialite said Thursday, prior to the start of the Barbara Bui Fall 15/16 Ready-to-Wear presentation. Sitting front row Palermo, an AUP alumni was joined by her former AUP classmate Lucas Samoza.

The collection blended elegance, which was infused with Bui’s signature french rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic. Also, there was a continuous medieval vibe with muted hues, patent leather accents, sparkling metal, pointed shoes, and asymmetrical cuts. My favorite look from the collection:

After the show I got caught up with Kelly Rowland, the famous American singer known for her time with Destiny’s Child.“I loved it, the coats are amazing!” Rowland said, when I asked what she thought about the collection. But, her favorite piece was “a black leather dress, and it was super mini – it was gorgeous, I want that dress” Rowland said. Below is a picture of the look she described:
