One of Dauphine’s favourite couture labels is no other than Paolo Sebastian. The twenty-six year old Adelaide designer behind Paolo Sebastian, Paul Vasileff, launched his newest collection this past weekend at the Adelaide Fashion Festival. The collection entitled Gilded Wings, was inspired by the fragile wings of a woodland faery who falls in love with a young man lost in the woods, can you say dreamworld?!
Between the intricate hand-embroidery, French tulle and tones of rose gold, lavender and storm grey the delicate pieces pay homage to the fragile wing of the dragonfly. Standout pieces include a winged petal skirt gown, a beaded rose gold gown with cape and an embroidered lavender wing sleeve gown. Vasileff’s signature fishtail and ball gown silhouettes are also still present, paired with sheer paneling and wing-inspired beadwork, celebrating the attention to detail that the label is known for.
