The Inspiration:

·        This season, Laura was inspired by the Hollywood stars of the late 1940’s, the era when black & white film transitioned into colour.

·        Think intellectual beauties like Ingrid Berman, Katherine Hepburn and Rita Hayworth, with their signature sensual quality and slightly colourized look.

·        The soft, sultry, moody palette inspires a cinematic vintage charm, strong romanticism and ultra-feminine appeal.
