Elisa Palomino creates a modern day 'Midsummer Night's Dream'. Take a peek at this dreamy collection inspired by the Victorian fairy painting movement.
Whimsical, cascading and mysterious are but just a few phrases to describe Elisa Palomino’s ethereal spring/summer 2012 collection. Presenting at the Vauxhall Fashion Scout for the first time, Palomino combined the beauty of a Greek goddess with a 20s flapper girl sassiness. The Spanish-native delivered a romantic theatrical collection that captured the ideal of femininity through the use of sheer fabrics, appliqués and couture hats that gave off a Tim Burton wow-factor. The models looked like walking flowers, blossoming with every step down the runway. Their seemingly frozen like faces and pouty lips helped marry the collection to life.
Palomino has worked at the likes of Moschino, Cavalli, Dior Haute Couture and Diane Von Furstenburg, thus her understanding of craftsmanship, colour and prints make for a powerful design statement. Drawing inspiration from the Victorian Fairy painting movement Palomino’s SS12 collection was a fanciful adventure through a modern fairytale.
