The Amaya Arzuaga show at the Grand Palais for Paris Fashion Week got off to a bright start with geometric dresses creating a modern day "Jane Jetson" look. Structure and geometry seemed to be the theme of the collection, with models showing short dresses with pleated fabrics that created a futuristic feel. Accentuated hips were unique yet wearable, without being over the top. The fabrics were heavy with a combination of wool and jersey. The collection was comprised of bright primary swatches of color with black added in for balance. A few beige pieces scattered throughout the collection gave a nice contrast of a classic look to the outfits. A beige pantsuit with a structured jacket emphasizing the shoulders was a safe way to open the show for Arzuaga.

As the Amaya Arzuaga collection continued down the runways, there was a switch into long flowing dresses that trailed along the floor, stirring up white dust behind the models. The dresses were black, with one large line of color circling around the dress as a reference back to the geometric feel of the previous pieces. The show ended with a striking long blue dress with pleated fabric. It was a nice way to end the show, as the audience was looking at the back of the model walking away and was left wanting more geometric dresses.
