DIONNE CLAUDETTE ALVES
Runway Report
 

''Goa means 'Home'. I've been visiting Goa since I was ten. It's my place of peace and to refresh my mind. A lot of couples pick beach destinations like Goa for their wedding so Resort Bride is important to me as a designer; I’d love to make their occasion special with the right kind of ensembles'' Dionne Claudette Alves told me. 

 

Steeped in inspiration from her European trip, evident in fabrics like white floral lace from Paris, Dionne soaked in designs and styles in Paris, Barcelona, Lisbon and Greece to bring a European feel to the runway. Throughout the collection we observed a hint of each place, so diverse but still 'coalesce', and that's how the collection title was born! A fusion of beach, resort and destination bridal, each look was versatile and wearable and could be styled in different ways. Crafted from a mix of faux lightweight leather, floral satin, suede, crotchet, lace and neoprene, standouts include a black bodysuit with tulle cover in the women’s line while faux leather suits and white embroidered sherwani made an impact in the menswear. The looks were accessorised with handmade floral headpieces to keep the pace fun and flirty! Overall, the showing was a reflection of her personality, and reminded me of her mantra: ''The pace is frenetic but to survive I just feel the ocean, sun, sand, breeze and enjoy the fashion experience!''
