For her Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Ines Di Santo was captivated by one of Europe’s most romantic cities. Known as the “Queen of the Adriatic”, Venice, and more specifically the city’s annual Carnevale, inspired Ines with its ornate masks, exuberant spirit and grandeur. Reminiscent of the fashions of Italy’s opulent Baroque Era, the enchanting collection is rich with jewelled embroidery, infusions of colour and feminine elegance.
The names of the gowns are steeped in history, in juxtaposition with the softness of the designs themselves, just as the collection blends lightness and decadence. Dreamy gowns of blush Silk Gazar and powder blue give way to rich Macramé and Alençon lace appliqués. Alluring translucent bodices and illuminated champagne metallic chiffon dance before tiered voluminous skirts and laser cut layers of organza.
Inspired by the legendary celebration of Carnevale, the Spring/Summer 2013 collection was created for the most personal celebration of all.
The twinkling lights of Paris are reflected throughout this collection. Soft, delicate sparkle & shine, shimmer & flitter are the foundation of this airy and layered collection of young and feminine gowns using a mix of tulle,lace and unique fabrications throughout.
