Designer Sandra Mansour creates a mood of contrast with a collection of thirty-six looks which is inspired by the ambiguity between masculinity and femininity, potency and fragility, grunge and sumptuousness.
Her ensemble boasts of brocade with delicate lace reinvented in various forms of embroidery and sequence. Distinctive embroidery techniques and transparency punctuate each silhouette with elegance and grace adding infinite luxury to the collection. However, a re-interpreted non-conformist vibe of the 80’s is denoted via the addition of the mesh fabrics to the looks, depicting a deliberately bohemian appeal.
