Her runway show was spectacular, more than ever before, totally couture-level and in tune with eveningwear trends. Tiffany glass and intricate stained-glass windows are the inspiration for this season’s collection. They applied these concepts through the use of embroideries, trim silhouettes, and prints. Window-like linear techniques are used throughout the collection, along with blending shades of bold and muted colors to represent the Opalescent technique used in Tiffany stained glass.
The signature Pamella Roland silhouettes, reworked using new techniques, are each fashioned with exquisite fabrics including stretch crepe, degrade floral printed Mikado and organza, and various laces. The Fall/Winter 2019 embroideries include 3D floral appliques, pearls, colorful ostrich feathers, ornate metallic threadwork, ombre signature sequins, confetti beading, and liner mixed-element embellishments.
