August Getty’s childhood is filled with memories of his mother (Ariadne Getty, daughter of Sir Paul Getty, KBE – a.k.a. John Paul Getty II) opening larger than life boxes from the greatest couturiers of her time. Each box of timeless couture sparked creativity and ignited Getty to create his own works of art.
Channeling mindfulness of wildly delightful European Heiresses, Statues and his family’s botanical gardens, he would sit for hours and draw Hydrangeas, Peonies and Wisteria — elegant details that have abundantly appeared throughout his collections. This season, glamour, power and preeminence push the envelope of Getty’s designs that include drop dead, head turning dresses and gowns to be most coveted by those who convey the same uniqueness and prestige.
