The Czar of embellishment showed Oriental inspired motifs in the colours of nature – ornate flowers, birds of paradise, and butterflies for the embroideries. The colour palette began with stark black and white, then on to gorgeous blues and ended with bright yellows and pinks. The ramp and ambiance added drama too with the show starting with a Chinese Dragon Dance.
