My fashion heart belongs to Ralph & Russo!! I am just amazed by their romantic and poetic sense: the beauty in the craftsmanship is just marvelous. In this collection, Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo professed their love for peonies and tulips, ivy leaves and roses, which they delicately hand-painted, sculpted or appliquéd on dresses. They made us to travel to a blooming colorful garden; we literally felt spring in each and every piece of this collection. Everything seemed light and airy. The collection varied between white and pastels pieces to cobalt blue or black with silver embroideries.
It oscillated between dazzling ball gowns and a series of corseted bustier, evoking Fifties pinup glamour were softened by breezy silk chiffon night robes or luscious opera coats. In addition, we have seen siren dresses followed by a trail full of petal-shaped feathers. The cape was a noticeable motif in several looks: it adds a lot of glamour and royalty to the looks. Now the masterpiece of the show was of course the bride, which is familiar to to brand : A bride, who required the help of six aides to turn around in a gown with maxi kimono sleeves and a three-meter train, embellished with silver bullion, pearls and crystals. Absolutely stunning!!
