They say you shouldn't count on happy endings but Coutorture favorite Ashleigh Verrier's clothing is made for women who write their own stories. The always informed Verrier drewn on inspiration from fairy tales this season an interesting continuation if we may say so from Fall's Russian romanticism. But if there is one thing we appreciate it is Verrier's very personal narrative. She drawn's own her own inner convictions and personal preferences to shape inspirations into something unique in her design process.
The collection was decidely less serious than her Fall collection and we mean that in the best possible way. Verrier told us it was an emphasis on whimsy. In particular this played out in the detail work with a few friendly animals making their way onto pieces. With sponsor Swarovski providing crystals there many options for those in need of a little something extra. And we even saw a hood on the catwalk, and no it wasn't red, it was blue!
