Day to Night: 'Fantasha' Dress, Two Ways!

Julie’s pick of the month is the Wave Collection’s signature piece - the Fantasha dress. This dress is not only timeless, but extremely versatile - keep reading to find out 2 of our favourite ways to style it, perfect it for day and night!

 

DAY

The water-ripple aesthetics of Fantasha makes it
the perfect piece to wear under the sun. For a
glamourous spring-time look, pair the dress
with simple crossover slide sandals, and angelic
gold earrings. Add in some pearls for that extra
touch of elegance.

 

 

 

NIGHT

When night falls, it’s time to bring out those
attention-stealing statement accessories. Think
bright, bold, beautiful and dangerous. Create an
electric contrast by pairing your gorgeous
Fantasha with ruby red jewellery and stunning
red killer-heels, reminiscent of Old Hollywood,
but perfect for the new age.

Spring Racing in Style

It’s that time again! Late October means that spring racing season is about to flood in once again, reviving our spirits in time for the end
of another glamourous year.  Think flowing dresses,  decadent millenary,  glasses of champagne and light chatter reverberating through
the open  air  –  no wonder  it generates such a buzz.  But,  of course,  as with any  such dazzling event,  comes the  age old question –
what to wear?  And that is  where we come in!  Take a look at our  racing dress code guide  below for a delicate infusion of tradition and
trend that will ensure another spectacular season of fashions on the field.

 DERBY DAY

The most  elegant and traditional  day is the  kick-start of the season –  Derby Day.  There  is  big money  to be won,  and chic elegance
dominates both on and off the field.  The monochrome code is strictly adhered too  –  there is no place for colour, and no place for prints.
Look for a bold black or bold white piece, or perhaps a two-piece combination of both – just because there's no vibrance, does not mean
you should not  make a statement!  Pair the  outfit  of your choosing  with  accessories that  bring out  an aura of class;  we’re  thinking a
classic black headpiece, decorated high heels and decadent jewellery.

MELBOURNE CUP DAY

It’s the race that stops the nation  –  so think bold, eccentric, expressive, and, above all, think statement!  This is  the day to bring out those
vivacious hues and  that  show-stopping fascinators. Completing your outfit with accessories that add strong contrast will create the perfect
look for the most iconic and luxurious day of the season

OAKS DAY

Affectionately known as  Ladies’ Day,  Oaks Day is when  the feminity blooms.  Pastels and silk chiffon, flora and vintage flair, soft pastels and
muted hues  –  it is all about expression.  Stun the crowd is a flowing floral piece,  accessorized with rose gold and pearls,  and millinery of the
most feminine class.

Wave Collection


The first words I wrote on my inspiration board when thinking about this collection were...

GOING WITH THE FLOW                                              

 

LIFE'S PATTERNS

 

FREQUENCY

 

FLUIDITY

 

SURFING THE WAVES OF LIFE

 

LIFE IS A WAVE OF EVENTS


Like most Australians growing up near the beach, weekends and Christmas holidays spent camping along our beautiful coastline has naturally drawn me to have a strong
connection  to  the ocean. I have spent countless hours watching the waves roll onto the beach; body surfing  and beach fishing with  my  parents  are  some  of  my most
blissful memories. Getting lost in the wave, its rolling structure, intensity, expansiveness and  ever changing beauty  inspired me to design this unique collection called
“WAVE”.

I have named  the exclusive silk chiffon, silk crepe de chine and silk cotton prints, Wave, Lapis Lazuli, Azure and Black Onyx respectively,  to  represent  all  the  varying
shades  of  the  ocean. Super soft linens and cotton voiles provide the grounding colours of sky blue, white, navy and sand. Nautical stripe cotton  knits  with  trims of
printed silk and tassels bring together this beautifully balanced “in the flow” collection.
