This season the collection revisits the decadence of underground clubs of the 70’s. Think women dressed immaculately but with a provocative edge being the life and soul of a party. This is a collection for women who have a passion for living their lives to the fullest and appreciating the finer things in life.
The collection combines gossamer cotton meshes with rich silk brocades and silk crepes. Again the play of transparency continues with garments that tease with skin exopsed. The dresses range from being structured to a being ultra fluid. There is a huge emphasis on detailing with silk flowers and sugar like crystal beading on garments. Rich and sensual ostrich fringing adds a lightness of being to the garments but echo a playful slant to this collection. Custom made leather belts with a modern slant on the conventional bow.
The collection is comprised of cocktail and evening separates right down to evening gowns worthy of making indelible impressions.
“I have always been passionate about couture – this collection for me retains that passion even though it is a luxe Prêt-à-Porter collection. We have brought a slighty harder and youthful edge to a season that has been playing with ‘new’ romanticism and Bohemia”, says Rajah
