When we first laid eyes on the editorial for the Rue De Francois Spring 2016 Collection we were utterly speechless. There are not enough words to describe such beauty, but we shall try. The color palette marries together rich and warm colors that invoke luxury and pure opulence. This is fashion that is fit for a queen.
All pieces are hand made and are very well executed. Skill and love is what we noticed throughout the Rue De Francois Spring 2016 collection. The founder, Lorenzo Walker has been sewing since the tender age of 11. All those years of honing in on his craft have paid off for Walker who recently showed his fashions during NYFW.
Nevertheless, his efforts are paying off in another way as well. We recently discovered that Rue De Francois is the first ever Not for Profit House of Fashion. Lorenzo aims to share his knowledge of fashion and use all charitable donations, given or received, towards the disadvantaged and homeless.
Congratulations to Lorenzo Walker for chasing his dreams and being an advocate for those in need. Moreover, the Rue De Francois Spring 2016 collection is absolutely gorgeous and we can’t wait to see more in the future.
