Inspired by the Truman Capote and his Swans, the AW19 show was choreographed by Kiani Del Valle and included movements that ‘symbolized different ways in which women were portrayed in history, combining pedestrian movement with how women act and behave, both alone and together.’


“We decided to challenge ourselves to create our show pieces in sustainable materials, in a collection where sustainability and aesthetics go hand in hand,” said Creative Director Stine Goya.

The designer was innovative with the use of fabric for the party-friendly pieces, such as adopting single digital printing that doesn’t require water, decorating in recyclable sequins and implementing buttons made from up-cycled mineral shell powder


This thought process and eco-care produced a standout collection full with ruffles, fluffy layers and embellishment – modern decadence.

Niche fashion weeks like Seoul, Kiev, Sydney and Copenhagen have been helping define the narrative of fashion trends alongside the big four – New York, London, Milan and Paris. Many would argue that it’s these hubs of style that produce industry game-changers that everyone wants to wear, from street to party.
