Replete™ Skincare Brings Parisian and American Haute Couture to San Francisco
2014 Couture Fashion Event showcased on aura tout vu and Mimi Tran
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday October 25th, Replete Skincare sponsored the 2014 Haute Couture Fashion Event at the Fairmont San Francisco. The event showcased the Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection of Parisian Haute Couture designers, Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov of on aura tout vu and the Spring 2015 collection of rising American couture designer MIMI Tran.
The evening was sponsored by Replete Skincare and was their official launch as the first skincare company to treat skin like haute couture. Based in Circadian and seasonal skincare, Replete ensures that skin is as luxurious to touch as the haute couture items on the catwalk. The founder Elisabeth Thieriot, is one of the world's preeminent connoisseurs of haute couture and her vision is to share the beauty of this art form with San Francisco.
Elisabeth Thieriot comments; "After you take your clothes off, your skin is all you have. Your skin should be treated with as much care and attention as any couture item. This is what drove me to found Replete Skincare, and hold this event. San Francisco is a thriving fashion hub, but I did not feel that anyone was really engaging with the fashion and beauty community in a way I knew we could do."
The event saw over 400 fashion fans and industry insiders, including Sonya Molodetskaya, Cynthia Schreuder, and Brenda Zarate, and Isha and Asim Abdullah of Ungaro who commented; "This was the most magnificent fashion show that I have seen. Replete Skincare and Elisabeth Thieriot have made a mark forever in San Francisco."
Opened by Elisabeth Thieriot, the evening started with a presentation from on aura tout vu, the wild-child designers of haute couture. Translating into "now that takes the cake," on aura tout vu is a collaboration between Livia Stoianova and Yassen Samouilov; two Bulgarians who are also true Parisian fashionistas. With signature sparkle, the duo presented 24 unique looks including dresses made out of crystals and precious stones. They also premiered High Gloss Haute Couture, their highly anticipated haute couture accessory label.
The Parisian singer French then performed for the first time on American shores, before 'The Ballad of Heels,' a presentation that showcased over 24 pairs of the most interesting shoes from the luxury footwear designer, Konstantina Tzovolou, began.
The second half showcased 12 couture form-fitting cocktail dresses and formal gowns by MIMI Tran, a Vietnamese-American designer raised in Paris. Tran's designs are sensuous, exclusive and unforgettable; all of her creations empower femininity and pay tribute to modern glamour.
Replete Skincare donated a percentage of all ticket sales to Reason to Party, the all-volunteer San Francisco 501(3)c non-profit that raises funds in fun ways for extraordinary local nonprofits. The funds are earmarked for Samasource, a nonprofit that helps connect poor women and youth to training and employment in the digital economy.
