Lila Grace, daughter of Kate Moss, was spotted on Fendi’s haute couture SS 2021 catwalk wearing a gorgeous all-pearl dress
This is not a mere embroidery or a precious detail that pays homage to jewelry, but one clear and bright manifestation of the mastery of haute couture. About what can be done with creativity, therefore genius, and with the hands, which together have the ability to transform an idea into a concrete garment.
