I'm a little excited to reveal the inspiration behind Daniela Stephanie Autumn/Winter 2014
collection. With feminine design and near theatrical silhouettes, this range gives you that sense of nostalgia,
of watching those romantic classical films and swooning over those high fashion garments and wanting
every piece to appear in your wardrobe almost instantaneously.
If you hadn't already guessed, The Emerald City from the classic The Wizard of Oz was the sole
influence behind this collection. It epitomises elegance with a stylistic and slightly dramatic edge.
Custom designed beading and embellishments, intricate embroidery, exquisite lace, tulle and textured
fabrics add drama to each piece. While a colour palette of crisp white, charcoal, black and of course,
emerald green, sealed with more softer tones of mandarin, aubergine and nude, keep the romantic and
sophisticated feel alive. Each piece is handcrafted in Australia using the finest materials, combining
minimalistic, chic daywear including camisoles, crop jackets, skirts, trousers and coats alongside more
heavily feminine, stunning cocktail and evening gowns.
When I look at the gowns specifically, I am taken away to a fairytale land, one where I am covered
head to toe in gorgeous beading and the softest nude tulle that sweeps the floor below.
Daniela Stephanie A/W '14 collection will be available from April via
the labels e-boutique aswell as through stockists nationally.
