Drawing inspiration from the close of Winter and the first break of Spring during a chilly morning stroll through Hyde Park, London, Alina Anwar Khan unveils her second couture collection.
Crisp whites and iridescent sequins gleam with luminosity representing the thawing of ice under the subtle break of sunlight. Feather trim hems hang like melting icicles ornamenting a lightly frosted ledge – a glacial sheen from the lead-lined lattice window reflects the sun’s beam.
Bare green bushes lay in abundance lining the reflective rain-soaked park pathways, where – among a scattering of fresh nude and blush hue buds – the first sweet pink rosette of the season sits proudly, graced with a fine icy dew. Delicate floral appliqué used throughout the collection represents the darling Spring buds desperate to burst into bloom, while luxurious organza has been marvellously manipulated to form rosette corsages and delicate petal detailing.
The seventeen-piece collection of floor sweeping gowns and cocktail dresses is made using only the finest of fabrics from Milan and Paris. See all looks here below.
