A Breeze Blows Through It

    The label WORLD describes itself as a factory of ideas and within their Summer 10/11 collection is this work of breezy, dream-coloured design. The dress is called ‘17 Again, Batwing’. It is, above all, a work of delicious fabric which, when worn, can flow and twirl without the restraints of intricate stitching.
    The fabric has a background and a foreground. The background is a black gauze with tiny flecks of silver shot through it. Laid onto this is the foreground of motifs like tree roots, tresses of hair and huge blooms done in brilliant colours. It is a proud, confident dress; like a rich stage-set you can carry around with you. It features at WORLD, 84 Victoria Street, Wellington.
