With a backdrop of a live orchestra, the first Designer Runway show was all a flutter with romance, flowy dresses and opulent fabrics.
The show opened with Jason Grech whose designs were sultry and slinky, featuring flowing gowns of emerald greens, purples and black that wouldn’t look out of place on the Maleficent film. Teamed with bold headpieces, the collection made a powerful first impression.
Feathers and lush tones of bronze and pewter made for a luxurious collection by Aurelio Costarella, whose designs seem fit for a futuristic Grecian goddess.
Dusky pink and pale blue duster coats; we sure knew it was spring with Michael Lo Sordo. Soft tailoring and pink metallic accents made this an incredibly fresh collection.
Carla Zampatti kept it simple in black and white with a dash of royal blue for good measure. Jumpsuits, shirts and simple black dresses; power dressing for the style conscious.
One for the boys, Dom Bagnato sent a variety of dapper suits down the runway from chambray and berry tones to sharp black; there was a look for every occasion.
Stepping into a dream world of tulle, embellishment and luxurious trailing silk, Gwendolynne’s collection was otherworldly. Sheer fabrics layered in various shades of white, cream and gold, the designs were simply ethereal.
Nicolangela proved sports-luxe is still going strong for spring by a collection full of mesh, perforated leather and plunging necklines.
Anaessia’s dance themed collection featured tutu inspired skirts, ballet shoes as accessories and embroidery fit for a princess.
