Made from linen, silk, cotton and biodegradable Amnio, the line included handmade crochet dresses, stylish fluid numbers and embroidered jackets in white, orange and blue colours.
Uruguay-based textile artist of Swedish origin Siv Anneli Göransson showcased merino wool made collection, inspired from the Swedish and Hollywood film actress of the silent and classic era Greta Garbo.
