As a young child, I did ballet so I remember dressing up in some of the most dazzling of dresses with jewels and sparkles. The excitement I had was otherworldly and made me a much more confident and beautiful dancer. I still carry this feeling now whenever I find a new dress in a shop. Re-immersing myself with childhood emotions. I think wearing a ‘statement’ dress is much more important now more then ever. A subtle, silk and minimalist dress suits my personal taste more. Dresses that focus on cut, silhouette and tailoring. Think of The Row Fall 17 and Maison Margiela. Below are my curation picking out the very best designers I think you should keep your eyes on. Beaufille, Eudon Choi are just a few names on my list.
