Basically the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
I was in my heaven for that brief period of time - Gavino improves every year!
According to Rajah, the show was inspired by Boccaccio's love poems and the Victorian concept of 'The Language of Flowers'.
I was, however, most impressed and enchanted with his incredible choice of hair and make up - the flowers in the models' hair were so beautiful that I wanted to run backstage and demand my own flower-child look.
|The show began with a gorgeous little girl tiptoeing and twirling down the runway in a pretty little custom Rajah dress. She opened the show with an air of enchantment.|
|The screens opened to reveal a stunningly beautiful girl dressed in a beeautiful Rajah couture gown. She was standing inside one of those awesome hamster balls and she played the cello beautifully throughout the show. It was awesome.|
|Yeah...you kind of can't see anything in this photo but it's COOL.|
|So prettyyyy. Lace and florals.|
|This was also stunning.|
|This was actually really cute and was a bright Barbie pink.|
|This was actually one of my favourites because of the delicate, intricate detail on the front.|
|I cannot explain how beautiful this dress was. It looked like it had come straight out of an Elie Saab show. It was light and floaty, with bronze(ish) lace; it was also amazingly tailored. Good job Gavino.|
|This one and the one below were SO PRETTYY. Cream tulle skirts with elaborately beaded flowers on the tops. And of course the flowers in the hair.|
|That big red bird on the far side was the final dress; that big red tulle thing was worn as a cape over a really pretty long red dress (which I didn't get an acceptable photo of).|
Of course...if you want to see decent photos, I recommend Elle SA - I saw the Elle team and their editor Jackie Burger at both shows I attended!
