Busardi shows aesthetic gowns at London Fashion Week

Busardi, the international prêt-à-couture label known for producing high-end evening gowns rises to the occasion this London Fashion Week; bringing a darker, more sinister mood to the romantic aesthetic the red carpet brand has become renowned for. 
 
The ethereal femininity that defines the fashion house has been sharpened with exquisite subversiveness, offering a seditious take on demi-couture dressing. The AW14 collection pays respect to the label’s 65-year old label’s heritage, while completely reinventing it for the new generation.
 
As a former formally trained landscape architect, the designer channels her fascination with gardens and flowers into a sartorial narrative based around a recurring darkened rose motif. The once demure Busardi woman of season’s past is defiled into a wicked world. 
 
The label’s signature use of floral lace, three-dimensional rose and petal appliqué and embroidery run throughout the collection, serving as a stark reminder of the whimsical beauty that has been integral to the brand’s success thus far. However, for Autumn/Winter 2014, the plot thickens.
 
Stood with their hair tucked behind leather thorn chokers made exclusively for Busardi, the vampy models hint at the darker desires of a woman harbouring a strong, new-found audacity. Provocative slits, shorter cuts, sheer paneling and bursts of weighty adornment offset a profusion of sweeping skirts, high necks and delicate detailing. 
 
An aqua waterfall dress offers a rare source of purity, highlighting the start of life and the replenishment of plants and gardens; while the use of rose printed silk zibeline on a standout jacket and dress allow the evil rose motif to blossom beyond the appliqué and spill onto the fabric.
 
Classic dresses and separates take the collection back into traditional Busardi territory, as sumptuously rich creations, bedecked with layers of lace and oodles of tulle are dominant. A lavish abundance of embroidery and a rich colour palette make the collection a treasure trove for those seeking ensembles for private parties, opening nights and celebrity events. 
 
The introduction of sharply tailored jackets, peplum shapes and a trend-lead micro-cape ensure that the Busardi woman remains current both on and off the red carpet; while the uncorseted style of dress offers the wearer the freedom of movement needed to reflect her modern lifestyle.
 
Colours: Black, royal purple, navy, electric blue, plum, crimson, royal blue, rose pink, sky blue, aqua and magenta.
Fabrics: Lace, organza, crepe satin, taffeta, rose printed silk zibeline, Thai silk, chiffon, tulle, brocade and duchess satin.
