What are your most popular styles?

We have had an amazing response to our contemporary gowns, such as the embellished halter Mandala gown, as well as the softer feminine Luna gown, which feature a gorgeous mix of lace and tulle in a rich taupe colour.

Our corset gowns, such as the Astral and Atlantis, are staples with our stockists, too, and finally our flagship gowns like the Lotus and Andromeda are probably the most popular and eye-catching designs – we get daily Instagram feedback on the flagship designs.
