The designer marveled the catwalk with her delicate and intricate designs. Playful, feminine and ornate were predominant in the amazing gowns, jumpers, shorts and maxi's that were presented. Inspired the carved saints done by local artisans on the island, this was evident with this amazing collection.
Makeup was simple, dewy skins and bare lips accompanied with braided buns and simple manicures with lovely nude/blush tones. This collection makes us excited for Spring!
