The fashion designer Denis Durand presents his Midsummer Night’s Dream exhibition of new 2015 couture creations during the Cannes Shopping Festival.
Under the patronage of HRH the Princess Tania de Bourbon Parma, the Cannes french designer Denis Durand is presenting at the Palais des Festivals, during the Cannes Shopping Festival, an exhibition of his new creations in 2015 on the theme of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream from 3 to April 6, 2015.
A magical and imaginary promenade
The couture creator offers an imaginary promenade in a strange and magical forest where Nature, elves and fairies, a small horse, a spellbinding potion, jewelry and glass creations, 15 silhouettes in embroidered and sparkling dresses and evening gowns with gorgeous accessories, intertwine and prepare the wedding of a princess, the time of a bewitching summer night, looking like a dream. Cross the romanesque arch, a wrought-iron gate to an enchanting and ephemeral garden world of designers creations, and let your gaze be delighted by the many surprises the intelligence of the hand provide.
A prestigious Princess godmother
HRH Princess Tania de Bourbon Parme is an unclassifiable designer, mainly specializing in creating exceptional objects for collectors or individuals wishing to possess unique works.
For 6 years, the descendant from the Bourbons of France, Henry IV and Louis XIV, the Princess has been internationally valuing the Art trades and French know-how through her association L’Art Autrement Dit.

He begun his trade in Paris with theater costume designer Dominique Borg, with whom he created, among other, Isabelle Adjani’s outfits for the film Camille Claudel. Fourteen years after the creation of the Denis Durand Couture brand, his passion for the 7th Art and Hollywood icons led him to settle in Cannes in 2007.
