Designer Adeline Andre (L) and an assistant dress a model on the runway at the Adeline Andre fashion show during Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 at JTM Gallery on July 6, 2009 in Paris, France. The presentation of this  multi layered silk chiffon dress was as well done as the simple concept behind it. Consisting of nine dress shapes, sewn into one continuous piece to be wrapped to form layers, the final result belied the complexity of its construction and process of dressing. Adeline Andre’s creation is reminiscent of Viktor & Rolf’s  Russian Doll dress, in which a single model, Maggie Rizer rotated on the catwalk while layers were piled on by the design duo.  At the end of the show she was wearing 70 kilos of gown.  Adeline’s version is more approachable and concise, with equal impact.
