Desert Rose Spring 2010




The Spring 2010 collection 'Desert Rose' is now online! The name of the collection 'Desert Rose' has formed the basis for inspiration  mainly through the images that those two words conjure in my mind; neutral, sandy colours, abstract roses, exotic prints and textiles, people in far away places, luxurious draped fabric. The detailing in some pieces is also inspired by the actual Desert Rose: a beautiful rock formation found in the desert that looks like rose petals.

The collection is all about Spring races dresses with feminine details and prints, formal dresses in draped silk jersey, party dresses in block coloured silk, and oversized rosette fascinators to finish off the outfit. My favourite piece is the first dress here, the Cascade silk jersey gown, a lustrous silk blend jersey pleated and draped into a luxurious, soft sculptural silhouette and adorned with rosettes on the straps. I just can't wait for an occasion to wear this one!
