This is visually stunning, muse popcorn. There are so many details. Sarah Burton drew her inspiration from the theme “The Ice Queen and her court”. The one word Sarah used to describe this collection – “Icy”.

The juxtaposition of the soft light materials with the black harness, brings edginess into this garment.  The open bishop sleeves allow movement and curved shapes.

The shape is very flattering with a fitted harness and tapper silhouette.  Wide sleeves add an opulence feature. I like how there are various point of elegant corsetry spaced throughout the outfit.

Apart from the use of the real fur, this outfit is stunning. The zips create interesting focuses in the garments. On the jacket, the zips extend from the shoulder down the bodice and form a curved detail. This element creates flattering lines. The working zip on the shirt also allows for silhouette diversity.

“I have always found a connection in creating wearable beauty. To be able to design pieces of art which can boost self-confidence and self-esteem of others”
