Eclipse Reverie

The FW 2024/25 couture collection “Eclipse Reverie” features meticulously crafted eveningwear dresses for the highly anticipated “Beetlejuice 2” movie premiere. Drawing inspiration from the “Beetlejuice 2” cast, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Monica Bellucci, the collection aims to fulfill the desire for statement pieces that complement alluring beauty on the red carpet. The iconic imagery of the original “Beetlejuice” movie and the Netflix series “Wednesday,” the revived “Beetlejuice” universe, and Tim Burtonesque’s dark and whimsical beauty will enrich the creative vision with modern twists. Along with the film and the show’s visual references, the concept of a lunar eclipse is narrated throughout the collection. The darkness and light of the lunar eclipse symbolize the overlap of two cultures in the designer’s life as an immigrant and their journey toward darkness, shadow, light, recovery, and hope. This collection offers a narrative that transcends boundaries and explores the power of fashion to convey complex emotions. It aligns with emerging trends in celebrating diversity, challenging traditional beauty standards, and fostering inclusivity, which resonates deeply with the diaspora identity crisis and healing journey. The collection “Eclipse Reverie” is a narrative of identity, inclusivity, and creative expression designed to leave a lasting impact on the design and art world.
