Barbara Bui Fall 2012 Show at Paris Fashion Week

PARIS – FashionTV is at the Barbara Bui show during Paris Fashion Week, with an exclusive look thanks to our host, Actress/TV Presenter Hofit Golan.
While some thought that designer Barbara Bui might be going back to her Vietnamese roots, it seems like the designer’s Fall/Winter 2012-2013 collection was more West than East, focusing on Western motifs and culture rather than Oriental prints. Still, there was that satin jacket with quilting in traditional Chinese style, tiger prints, and the heavy embroidery. Nonetheless, a first impression gave the appearance of 70s style and heightened metallics and glitz. There was a kind of elegance like Bianca Jagger or even David Bowie, the designer told Hofit Golan after the show.
