Presented at the recent Adelaide Fashion Festival, on a themed runway resembling a magical woodland, the collection of 34 gowns—entitled Once Upon A Dream—is inspired by “the essence of Disney.” It pays homage “to the stories and characters that have captured the heart and spirit of generations.”
The enchanting ensembles—which could be seen being worn by the of likes Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, or Snow White—feature romantic silhouettes in French lace and elegant tulle. Most dresses are adorned with sparkling embellishments and delicate hand embroidery, adding an extra magical quality.
