When creative worlds collide…

What I love about Don O’ Neill’s approach to fashion is his unique way of creating narratives around his designs. True to form, the story behind his autumn/winter collection for TheiaCouture is extraordinary.

Over dinner at Cinq Mars on Saturday evening, Don told me the story of how he was captivated by the work of a young Irish furniture designer, Joseph Walsh, whom he met at a design exhibition in New York. Inspired by Walsh’s “Lumeneria 2” and the way light passes through the design, Don was prompted to translate this beauty into his own work. The result is seamlessly sublime.

As any creative person knows, to take something you have a strong emotional reaction to and express it in something else is not an easy task. A challenge I was suddenly faced with on Sunday morning when Don invited me to Le Meurice Hôtel to capture my own vision of his collection for a feature here on TrésorParisien. I really wanted to capture the light reflecting through the design and I felt the “Joseph Walsh Lumenoria Dress” was the perfect piece to illustrate Don’s vision for this collection.

So on that beautiful Sunday morning in Paris, we borrowed the dress from the salon at Le Meurice, French model Audrey Tenart kindly agreed to model, we walked through Les Jardin des Tuilleries towards le pont du Carrousel. From there everything seemed to fall into place: the light, the movement in the dress, and the perfect Parisian backdrop and I am thrilled to share some of the images here with you today…
