My newest collection is all about sophistication with a sense of nostalgic soft romance. Shot around a desert lake in the sand and scrubland, this collection takes inspiration from the desert sunlight and warm hazy sunsets, with the dresses exuding an evocative laid-back sense of feeling and romantic movement.
Designed with versatility in mind, these are gowns that can take you from day to night in style, add detachable capes in beautifully embellished lace, or voluminous sleeves for a hit of contemporary style.
Featuring clean, modern lines and elegant silhouettes made from signature stretch eco crepe and eco satin back crepes, this newest collection of dresses are stunning yet versatile too.
These dresses have a sophisticated timeless feel that will transcend from season to season – elegantly romantic enough for your ceremony, with the right amount of modern cool to hit the dance floor as the stars come out.
Alora is made using the popular and romantic sequinned leaf lace from the Hidden Essence collection, made into a structured and fully boned bodice, and sculpturally fitted, fit and flare stretch crepe skirt with thigh high front split and a voluminous train. Sexy and sophisticated, there are removable bell sleeves that gather at the wrist for a further touch of on-trend drama.
Juniper is a clean, modern fitted crepe gown with a deep plunge neckline, built in boned and cupped structured bodice and fine spaghetti straps. A low v back continues striking the balance between glamour and elegance, and a fit and flare skirt with side split finishes this effortless silhouette. The beauty of this gown is in the simplicity, the shape and the fabric. It has been designed with versatility in mind being able to easily add on those glamorous accessories, one being the beaded Scarlett cape topper, that features in Hidden Essence, or even the sleeves from the Alora dress.
Wren features a fuller skirt shape in gorgeously fluid satin back eco crepe. The plunge neckline bodice is the same fit and shape as Juniper but is made from a heavily embroidered organic cotton floral lace. It is a striking lace in pattern, which works wonderfully with the clean satin back crepe in the skirt. Fully boned, and lined in a fine silk habotai to give a touch of sheerness which exposes the wonderful lace motif even more, this dress contains wonderfully intricate details despite its deceptively simple silhouette. This again is another versatile gown in that you can easily pair with matching lace puffed sleeves or fitted off the shoulder sleeves.
Bringing glamour to the proceedings, Ariana’s beaded and pearl encrusted bustier bodice has swoon-worthy removable tulle sleeves, making it feel almost like two dresses in one. The silk bias cut skirt has the most flattering drape, finishing off this show-stopping gown.
