Leanne Marshall’s F/W 2017 collection had a focus on special occasion and the gowns I saw were the epitome of ephemeral femininity – say that five times fast!
The designs were weightless and flowy executed in sheer light fabrics like chiffon and charmeuse. The majority of the gowns were done in soft neutral colors – taupe, mauve gray, tan and chocolate – with only a handful of them in punchy red and black.
The two that stood out the most are this red inverted v-neck double strap gown and the black gown that closed the show. Organza details all over the black gown and the matching long gloves mimicked bird feathers. That and the eye make up of the models evoked associations with the Black Swan.
