Introducing yet another exclusive gem from the world of fashion, Galeries Lafayette Doha unveiled the newly established Italian fashion brand, Del Core, for the first time in the Middle East on November 17, 2021. The brand was showcased in Qatar at an exclusive dinner gathering in the presence of the founder and the brand’s creative director Daniel Del Core.
Del Core is a fashion house founded in Milan by Daniel Del Core. Counting on an international staff of talents and craftsmen, Del Core started operations in the spring of 2020 and debuted with the first collection at the beginning of 2021.
The designer, who has worked for prominent Italian fashion houses taking care of a special clientele of actresses, artists, and musicians, is a creator of multifaceted collections that include one-of-a-kind couture pieces – a selection of which has been showcased during the dinner. Only 33, Del Core is the herald of an imaginative, glamorously provocative vision that represents a new spark in the Italian fashion panorama.
The Del Core collection that was presented at the gathering in Galeries Lafayette Doha’s penthouse, La Suite, is a selection of haute creations from the brand’s debut and sophomore shows. It evoked a sense of classical beauty and a love for nature expressed through a surprising, ever-evolving fantasy of mutant glamour, painstakingly brought to life in the Milanese atelier of Del Core with exceptional manual skills.
The presentation was followed by a private dinner at La Suite’s Terrace where exclusive guests were treated to an equally elegant Italian dinner.
On November 18 and 19, VIP clientele enjoyed one-to-one appointments and private fittings with Daniel Del Core. The individual encounters unveiled the magic that happens when the creator and client meet. The sessions offered a golden opportunity to customize creations according to individual measurements and wishes.
Speaking about the brand’s debut at Galeries Lafayette Doha, Daniel Del Core said: “I am grateful to Galeries Lafayette for this opportunity, which allows me to show my couture creations in front of an exclusive audience. Working one-on-one with the clients is one of the guiding principles of the house I founded, and I am happy I was able to do it in Doha”
Speaking about the collaboration, General Manager of Galeries Lafayette Doha Kevin Gerard Pender said: “We are excited to welcome a young, emerging brand to the Galeries Lafayette Doha family. The elegance and fluid aesthetic vision of the brand matches the creative freedom that Galeries Lafayette stands for.”
