The collection has translated a unique and personal theme. Singerly the garments are exploding with creativity but when placed as a collection they tell a story, an expression of beauty. The pieces are is more than just a fashion statement they are a form of art. The collection had a very well thought about the balanced vision, the heavy prints and oversized silhouettes were all controlled by the different colour combinations.
