Justin Cassin Resort 2019
Justin Cassin was my final show of MBFWA, and the opening of the show felt like a celebration, as the crowd was extremely enthusiastic and excited.

We are Kindred Resort 2019 reminded me of someone lying by the pool in their holiday home in the south of France. Pastel florals with oversized hats were on show, and many of the prints took inspired from rococo painting that was flirty and playful.
