Tony Ward Couture Spring Summer 2017
February 10, 2017
Behind the work of every great artist rests a beautiful muse. Aelia Eudocia, a Byzantine woman who refused to settle for injustice, is the muse behind Tony Ward’s Couture Spring Summer 2017 Collection.
Similarly charmed by her as was young emperor Theodosius II, who feel in love with her and married her, Tony Ward’s love for her boldness and modernity shine through in the collection’s style. Through the eyes of the designer, the Byzantine Fashion is rethought and the rich mosaic patterns are seen through a new contemporary eye.
The collection is rich in colors; the splendor of the Byzantine Era is captured in this collection with play on transparency and modern tailoring. Traditional patterns are reinvented; crystals and precious stones are embroidered on garments made of lace, embroidered tulle and silk - which was especially beloved by the Byzantines.
This summer season, Tony Ward offers a collection int the image of the empress: a mixture of strength, poetry, boldness and femininity.
