Western-Australia’s most successful designer has named Man Ray and his muses as source of main inspiration behind the collection titled “Solaire” taking us on a ‘journey from delicately pretty to decadently noir.” He swept me off my feet.. I loved those delicate fabrics, pretty colours and feminine silhouettes. Tres jolie!

The astonishing evening gowns evidenced the strong influence of the most iconic designers living at the turn of the century and the early 1920’s such as:

*Madame Grès – the “grand sphinx” of the haute couture famous for her flowing Grecian-goddess style dresses
