Pretty Dreamy: Narces at World MasterCard Fashion Week Spring 2014

The spring collections at this year’s World MasterCard Fashion Week have been nothing short of inspirational. I’ve been adding to my list of spring inspirations daily. Runway highlights have included the pop art prints at Pink Tartan, the oodles of silk chiffon and laser-cut lace at David Dixon and the wash of navy all over the Joe Fresh runway seen everything from fitted tuxedo suits to delicate slip dresses. Another collection that I knew would be out for my retro heart was Narces.

Described as a designer influenced by iconic women of the 1940-60s synonymous with romantic glamour and who embrace a unique sense of style, Nikki Wirthensohn’s after-five and evening wear collection was a true pleasure to see up close.

Narces had me with the first look that graced the runway. A pretty, ballerina style dress in frothy white and silvery beading set the tone for the remainder of the show – one that was elegant and glamorous, but also fun, fresh and unpretentious.

It’s difficult to pick only a few favourite looks, but those that really grabbed my attention were the dresses adorned with giant pearls, the sugary pastel frocks and the long-sleeved dresses dripping in sequins.

See just some of my favourites below.
