STORY: His mother opened the show, marching down a long runway set like a stage and lined with draped red velvet curtains, wearing pointy heels and a long, roomy trench coat, navy blue on one side, black on the other, tightly cinched at the waist with a cloth belt.

Gvasalia - usually known as Demna - used the show's soundtrack to throw the focus on the construction process, featuring actress Isabelle Huppert reading instructions on how to make a tailored jacket.

Other models in the Kering owned label's show included a fashion professor, artists, students, a public relations executive, a personal trainer and online fashion magazine The Cut's fashion critic Cathy Horyn.

Closing the show was the designer's husband, Loik Gomez, a music artist known as BFRND, in a wedding dress. Worn with a long, white lace veil over his head, the dress was made from seven dresses, “cut, tiered and piled together anew,” according to the show notes.
