After a four-year absence, Peter Dundas hit the runway in Paris on Monday night, March 6, 2023. His seductive line of seafarer and siren looks, which paid homage to his Norwegian roots, flooded the opulent interior of the Opera Palais Garnier in crimson light.
The designer, who is now based in Los Angeles, claims that his eveningwear customers have been requesting more from him lately. As a result, he started expanding his tailoring services, utilizing knowledge gained from his time working with Jean Paul Gaultier, among others.
For the D24 COLLECTION – THE WOMAN AND THE SEA, Peter Dundas
picked up on the uniform trend that was prevalent on the season’s runway. He also incorporated his family’s history and love affair with the sea, which included his father’s career as a naval officer, his uncles who were ship captains and his aunt who was among the first female naval telegraphists in history.
The show kicked off with the first outfit which was a red-lined, navy wool greatcoat draped over a red minidress.
