What Is She Wearing | Greta Constantine and Ezra Constantine Spring 2012 Fashion Show

Last night I had the pleasure of witnessing the unveiling of Greta Constantine 2.0. While the design duo of Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong returned to their roots by creating gorgeously draped Grecian-inspired jersey dresses they also continued their evolution by infusing the GC DNA into their grittier designs of the last few seasons. The result of this melding of two seemingly at odds aesthetics? Slinky knee-length asymmetrical dresses alongside deconstructed clothes and drawstring shorts perfect for urban nomads. Leather, knitwear and gauzy tie dyed fabrics with hits of chartreuse were presented alongside jersey dresses in vibrant purples, corals, greens, teals and deep reds as well as greiges and grays. My favourite pieces from the collection were the two gray extreme micro mini dresses with braided straps (though they could have used a few more inches on the hem).

Continuing on with my resolution to avoid the all-black everything trap I wore a deep blue sleeveless Zara dress (with a v-back and exposed zipper, regretfully not pictured) with Aldo platform pumps, gold, black and animal print H&M bracelets and ring, and a black and gold Aldo handbag with a multi-coloured J. Crew scarf.

Me with stylist and blogger Chantel Bedward of Pink Mafia.

While the dress isn’t a bright pink or a colour blocked ensemble the contrast of the prim neckline with the revealing v-neck back and edgier exposed zippers more than compensates for that.
