Jenny Packham's spring 2014 collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has her signature sparkle, embellished and embroidered fabrics and lots of crystal, beads and chantily lace and a beautiful vintage vibe. The collection is inspired by the Australian cult film ‘Picnic At Hanging Rock’ and the exquisite styling of the film. Packham picks up cues from the seventies take on austere Edwardian attire and the collection fuses classic 70’s prints with traditional embellishments and materials championed at the turn of the 20th Century. Polka dots, checks and stripes are mimicked in beautiful pearl and Swarovski beading. Brick red, cobalt blue and lime green tones are contrasted with a delicate array of soft powder pinks and silver marbles. Translucent, weightless organza adds a whimsical romance to the collection whilst waists clinched with satin ribbons reference the silhouettes of the Edwardian era. The celebrities sitting at the front row will also find some amazing red carpet gowns in the collection for the upcoming award season.
