The Last Czar’s Ball 

Taking from the classics, Angelo dips into the pages of Russian History, pausing at its finest moment, The Czar’s Winter Ball of 1903. The Supreme Emperor Nicholas II of Russia had invited the most magnificent echelons of his court to attend this spectacular event. History documents it as the most heroic, dramatic and poetic winter balls, one of fashion’s finest moment. 

Resonating that preciousness of luxury, celebrating Life, as the world emerges from darkness, Angelo uses rich brocades, pure French lace, diaphanous tulle, and rare embellishments or caviar beads, creating couture, like the rarest art, using loving hand embroidery textures with modern day silhouettes.

Highly technical construction, beautiful boning, satirical shapes, are developed by Couturier and his team of artists. Translating timeless style, with an edgy twist, uniquely shaping mid-20th-century silhouettes, creating a unique collection for modern royalty and discerning fashion lovers 

Every bead, every cut, every ensemble is handmade, impeccably finished, to capture the contemporary spirit of the culture and stir a movement towards reviving hand embellishments with a touch of lightness, especially focusing on the MENA+ Asia regions and their passionate love for Couture. 

Titled ‘The Czar’s Last Ball” it captures the grandiose of the courts. Using dance, gymnastics, theatre, with an interplay of storytelling and light performances, Angelo’s spectacular show is directed by maestro of theatre and fashion ramps Kevin Oliver. 

Besides the beautiful models, they duo have invited ballerinas, acrobats to highlight the ensembles in a glorious symphony of style which will forever be etched into the memories of their audiences.
