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

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

After I met him during the first day of MaltaFashion 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 Ididn’t want to come across as a fashion geek or some serious fashion journalistdoing a profile interview.

So, I just listened to his general conversationsover the course of time I spent around him. I’ve always pondered how designersfelt right before their show. Do they get nervous? Eymeric doesn’t. After manyyears of experience, I guess you get to shake off the nerves and replace itwith a better feeling of excitement.

Eymeric wasn’t only passionate about hiscollection but also about the models he uses and the team of people he workswith.

Eymeric François’s POISONcollection was art meets attitude meets sass. The models were fierce as theywalking down the runway to rock metal music. Eymeric’s cleverly merged hautecouture with ready to wear. Just because he can. Go have a nosey at his collection andlet me know what ya think. The black tulle dress which opened the collection ismy 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 toconfirm or stick to rules – if my judgement isn’t right, I’m sure I’m not toofar from.
