Caroline Perino closed the show with a collection that was all about colour blocking. Caroline secured a sponsorship for her debut collection and collaborated with Swarovski for her final look. “I spoke to them about my passion to become a designer – they loved my ideas and offered to provide the crystals for my final looks,” she explained. Besides the lovely splash of colour seen on shift dresses, her designs included a lot of 3D elements including beads, foam to create volume and ceramics.
