One must admit, these days it is difficult to be surprised by fashion shows and new brands. However, the first time the collection of young and incredibly talented designers Baltazar Cherry hit the catwalks, it was clear that these guys have great potential.
The brand name itself is intriguing. The name Baltazar is associated with a demonic creature of Jewish mythology, while Cherry resonates with the French word 'Cheri' meaning cute or beautiful. It alludes to a curious mix of something both angelic and devilish. Indeed, the Baltazar Cherry collection is very eclectic. Bright and bold sexy dresses, vintage corsets, lush crinoline skirts with deep cuts, decorations with feathers and jewels - very much in the spirit of the burlesque early collections of John Galliano. Of course the idea of meeting these two designers sparks one's curiosity. It turns out that behind the mysterious name Baltazar Cherry are two creative designers: Zaven and Timur.
