A little sexy, a little fun, always fashionable. White Sands is quintessentially glamorous, always with an eye to fashion, and a nod to the carefree style that is so Australian. An anthology of unique and fashion forward styles. From tiny brazilian cut bikinis and beautifully shaped maillots in exclusive prints. White Sands is tipped to be one of the most glamorous, fashion forward collections to come out of Australia yet.

Designer Finalist Profile: Blanc + Delta

Posted in Designers, Follow the Fashion Competition by brisbane on August 21, 2009

One of the ‘final five’ Follow the Fashion entrants is local label blanc + delta.

The label’s Spring / Summer 09/10 “Into the twilight” collection is set amidst a mid-summers dream. A soft romantic colour palette is featured in silver-moon, apricot and peach for twilight and black for Midnight.

Featuring exquisite old-world fabrications and soft delicate shapes, the collection makes reference to Edwardian femininity. From white plush velvet and silver-metal jacquard to soft silk satin, georgette and organza each piece is luxurious and textured.

To spice up the silhouette and for a refreshing change, space-age inspiration is added to the mix…  Metal hardware features harden up the pieces with zips and metal studs. Straight-lined panel dresses with square angled sleeves are featured with contrasting panels of velvet and jacquard. Frills and pleats in different sizes are intricately placed along seams and panels for fine detail and bring a couture feel to the collection.
