Each piece embraces the baroque silhouette with cupcake dresses and voluminous draped fabrics. A modest color pallet of creams, blacks, silvers, blushes, and soft greens comes alive with the savoir faire motif that persists throughout the collection. Black gowns with layered tulle have darker tones that juxtapose the softer compositions like the strapless pink feathered dress. The contrast offers a dynamic string of looks that fit all definitions of high class fashion. 

This runway show opened with Ella Richards garbed in a black bustier dress with tufts of white organza peeking from underneath. The decedent dress was just a taste of the line’s extraordinary leaps in design. The house was clearly not afraid to play with different material pairings, alternating seamlessly between silky satins and intricately lain lace and beaded pieces. The collection ended with the Olympia of Greece look, and the gown surely lived up to its title. The divine¬†gown of quaffed tulle was a bright and fresh finale to a whimsical collection.

The collection was complimented by a refined assortment of accessories. Handcrafted earrings and necklaces were well suited details that elevated the already impressive designs. The show plays masterfully with fit and form, creating a wide-ranging collection that captures all facets of design and technique.
