Fascinated with mystics and the unknown, Erdem Moralioğlu drew inspiration for this show from the story of Princess Orietta Doria Pamphilj, the real-life Roman aristocrat who died in 2000 at the age of 78. Entitled “The Legacy of Inheritance”, the designer imagined the princess’ life shortly after her father died and she inherited his estate in the 1960s. He was curious about the way in which she would have adapted to life in Rome after the relative freedom she would have enjoyed in London. Textiles were the star of the show and Moralioğlu included brocades, lace, and intricate prints. The designer also stuck to the voluminous shapes for which he is best known.
