Lviv, Ukraine – At the Inbal Gvili fashion show, a parade of beautiful dresses in soft, delicate fabrics such as silk and voile hit the catwalks of Lviv for the celebration of the Spring/Summer 2014 season to come. The forest is the obvious inspiration for the prints. We see the wild branches of large trees don the back of the dresses and the fronts. The tree trunks are used to line the spine of the woman.
Rare are the solid pieces in the collection. When they do appear, it is as a silk organza overlay on top of a shorter cut short dress in the tree print. The designs show the beautiful shoulders of the woman. She moves freely through space and in time with no effort. Though vulnerable she is chic, elegant, feminine and soft.
