The necessity of dreams and the inevitability of reality. The attraction of beauty and the awareness of workmanship. The Alberta Ferretti Fall 2017 collection tells a story through images of the history, culture and beauty of Italy.

Images of Venice and portraits of women by Giovanni Boldini become part of this story about artisan craftsmanship and creativity. Romantic sentiment establishes a dialog with courageous innovation in this collection that expresses a romantic dream that has come true and is full of pride.

Extremely variegated in both styles and textures, Ferretti’s collection was coherently showcased per different motif. The designer carefully embroidered cascades of crystals on most of the dresses, creating something unique. With optical separates and a dream array of Thirties-inspired ensembles, the collection was refined with luxuriously tailored velvet fabrics.

Airy and ethereal Nature-inspired dresses were showcased with goddess-like figures. Beautiful gowns and capes were seen which evoked fairytale vibes.
