image copy 2 By Priya Kumar Collette Dinnigan is perhaps best known as being the first Australian designer to showcase her ready-to-wear in Paris. Her creations are fun and flirty and have been embraced by celebrities on the red-carpet for over a decade now. Her S/S14 offering was no exception. Held at Le Salon Des Miroirs, the collection was inspired by Canadian Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now. Looks featured appliqué flowers, gross-grain ribbon sashes and flowing chiffon. Considering the opulence of the environment, the collection certainly evoked the world of Versailles circa Marie Antoinette. Truth be told the silhouettes were sleek, modern while maintaining Dinnigan's pervasive femininity, while the beading added just the right amount of sparkle for young Hollywood. Most of the pieces were designed to do double-duty taking the looks from day to night. image copy   image copy 4
