PARIS–What do performers Maître Gims M. Pokora, Shy’m, Yelle and GQ “Woman of the Year” Emilia Clarke have in common? They have all been dressed in the hand made couture costumery of the designer known as Gabriel D. The glamorous, sexy corsets and accessories, possess a heavy dose of erotica and just the right amount of humor. Surprisingly, the creator of these outrageous yet luxe accessories is actually quite shy at first. Nevertheless, the Belgian-born designer invited BACO’s Paris correspondent Marianne Dorell into his studio near République and explained his art.
