Eymeric François is a French designer who has many years of experience under his belt. He’s Haute-Couture man – shows in Paris Haute Couture week every July.

Eymeric François, a man with a bubbly personality; chatty, quirky, playful and larger than life.

After I met him during the first day of Malta Fashion Week, I went back to my hotel to do some more research and YES, he’s af***ing big deal. I couldn’t get myself to ask him a lot of questions because I didn’t want to come across as a fashion geek or some serious fashion journalist doing a profile interview.

So, I just listened to his general conversations over the course of time I spent around him. I’ve always pondered how designers felt right before their show. Do they get nervous? Eymeric doesn’t. After many years of experience, I guess you get to shake off the nerves and replace it with a better feeling of excitement.

Eymeric wasn’t only passionate about his collection but also about the models he uses and the team of people he works with.

Eymeric François’ POISON collection was art meets attitude meets sass. The models were fierce as they walking down the runway to rock metal music. Eymeric’s cleverly merged Haute-Couture with ready to wear. Just because he can. Go have a nosey at his collection and let me know what ya think. The black tulle dress which opened the collection is my firm favorite from this collection. I can totally see myself in this piece. I’ll probably make it more London-esque by pairing with a cropped denim jacket.

You can tell he’s not one to confirm or stick to rules – if my judgement isn’t right, I’m sure I’m not too far from.
