From crystal encrusted, deep V-neck gowns with high slits to sequin-embellished minis trimmed with the softest feathers, there’s no question that all of the looks were adoringly lavish. Yes, even though the models walked slowly and gracefully to fitting songs like “3rd Stone From The Sun” by Jimi Hendrix and Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Velvet,” there was not enough time to take in the intricately patterned beadwork; a Packham signature.
Of course, there were plenty of softer silhouettes for those that prefer to make a classic statement. Ruffled sleeves provided a flirty finish to one crimson red number that was adorned with a golden gem brooch above the hip. And, an off-white design in a gauzy silk was cinched at the waist, the flowing material forming a gorgeous bow-like illusion.
As a nod to the relaxed, throw-on-and-go style of the ‘70s, Packham rounded out her red carpet-ready line with loose, lustrous sweaters that paired well with full skirts and wide-leg satin trousers. And, the accessories—from a crop of ostrich feathered clutches to chunky gemstone earrings and bracelets—were eye-catching enough to speak for themselves. In other words, as far as Packham’s concerned, you don’t need to pile on much in order to look stunning (aside from one of her designs, of course). And, isn’t that what effortless dressing is all about?
