Julien Fournié takes us to another universe with his "First Light" Autumn Winter 2016 runway. This season takes inspiration from galaxies and astrophysics, creating a collection that emphasises the only value that could transcend space and time - love. Fierce and daring with an element of elegant grace, feminine beauty is complemented with a sense of female empowerment. Celestial sparkling nebulae, dark matter veils, crystal stalactites, and gravitational designs are alluring with mysterious charm. Under a shower of black confetti, it was a powerful finale to which Fournié himself perfectly summarised the mood of his creative direction: "Haute Couture should continue to be to fashion what quantum physics is to astronomy".
