Mariana Magic
Mariana Hardwick’s latest collection, New Age Heirloom, draws inspiration from the ‘Belle Époque” or beautiful era, a period in European history that began during the late 19th century. Cascades of lace and ultra feminine clothes were in high demand, no expense was spared.
La Belle Époque was a wonderful time for fashion, a time when clothes showed off the female body with great elegance and style. Silhouettes of La Belle Époque focused on the female form giving the body shape through intricate corsetry techniques. Like gowns of the Le Belle Époque the latest collection from Mariana Hardwick has achieved a rich lavishness. Effortlessly romantic this collection showcases Mariana’s signature decorative techniques while maintaining modern simplicity.
A soft and romantic colour palette, matched with the most feminine of silhouettes and fabrications. Refined and delicate hues of pearl whites, ivory and latte with highlights of dusty lemon and lavender gives the collection a precious quality. Luxurious fine silk and silk satin, a soft mix of silk georgettes, organza’s and
sequin georgettes, satin crepe, beaded and silver gilt lace and embroidered tulles feature in the collection. Visit Mariana Hardwick at www.marianahardwick.com.au for further infomation.
