Din­ni­gan un­veils col­lec­tion

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

AUS­TRALIAN de­signer Col­lette Din­ni­gan’s sig­na­ture soft and ro­man­tic style was again on dis­play as the Aus­tralian de­signer un­veiled her lat­est au­tumn/ win­ter col­lec­tion at Paris fash­ion week.

Din­ni­gan, a reg­u­lar on French run­ways, com­bined dark fab­rics, graphic prints, lace and bro­cade to cre­ate a strik­ing fem­i­nine col­lec­tion.

Splashes of royal blue stood out from the mostly black, ivory and sil­ver col­lec­tion of short and long dresses, pants, floaty skirts and fem­i­nine blouses. Din­ni­gan says the col­lec­tion is about in­ner strength and free­dom.

‘‘ I drew inspiration from Frida Kahlo and Ar­gentina. I loved the eques­trian feel that gives women strength and power,’’ she said.
