What a stunning event! The brief was to create spring dresses with real flowers and how challenged we were! With navy being the new black, I centered my theme around Penny Gum Dyed Eucalyptus.
Since the roses were sponsored, we did not have a choice with the colors. My ideal would have been to create the roses in shades that complimented the navy blue, running as stripes across the dress (very Country Road spring!) but I had to work with the roses that we were given. I tried to create a pattern of stripes that extended towards the back of the top.
At this inspiring women's event, I felt that I represented so many women that are part of my heritage and I hoped that I empowered the young women of the next generation!
