It is the same colour palette as the men’s. I was looking into my past and at the archives and really revisiting some of the classics that I have done many years ago like embellishment, embroidery the paisley.I took some of my design team to my archive and it is quite interesting because I was dismissing things and they were saying: “no it’s fantastic, it’s fantastic!” A lot of the shapes I do are what I do for men as well, so a lot of parallel colours, parallel fabrics, similar shapes and then very wearable dresses and coats.Music of the show, (donot reuse for more than 7 days after the show)
