Made in Britain: Brocade Parade

Made in Britain: Brocade Parade

The new collection is inspired by British heritage and 1940s-50s silhouettes. Reflecting back to vintage ‘Balenciaga’, the designer’s elegant design style captured the decade. Balenciaga designed a collection of evening gowns in 1952, with floral fabric, sculpturing the faminin shape of the time.

The collection was a collaboration between ‘Daniella Christina’ and ‘B Millinery’, mixing fashion and millinery to showcase British patriotism. As the designs are made-in Britain, we wanted to keep this theme throughout the photoshoot. Taking inspiration from war-time Britain in the 1940s, where women kept their spirit’s alive by the make-do-and-mend trend.
