The collection was full of black, white, and various shades of greens, sprinkled with ruffles and lace and adorned with jewels, soft and see-through detail, and a hint of sensuality.
Maison De Hoe put on an upbeat show with pops of colorful details and fun patterns, while Ambergleam brought a soothing vibe to the runway with its music, model strut, muted colors, and jewel and earthy tones.
