Sheer fabrics spoke of a new poetic femininity and etherealness throughout the season as layers of soft tulle puffed from shoulders into cloud-like formations, billowing into weightless sleeves and ruched into almost Renaissance inspired silhouettes. Barely there antique lace delicately hung from evening wear into simple silhouettes, and trimmed more flirty cocktail wear.
Iridescent beading was stitched into an orchestra of hypnotic avant-garde formations at the likes of Alexander McQueen, Pamella Roland and Reem Acra, while a symphony of voluminous and bustling ruffles swept into fluid gowns at Valentino, Mary Katrantzou and Jason Wu. Feathers carried through from the Haute Couture Spring ’19 season dotted the runways; wispy trimmings gave an an air of softness and etherealness at Marchesa while more wild and untamed musings at Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta made a bold statement.
