The Ash to Gold 2013 collection is highly structural while maintaining a basis in relaxed movement. The line offers a series of skirts, frocks, maxis and jackets. The color palette shifts from muted greys and navies to bright yellows and neon aquamarines. Several dresses are geometric, boasting bold architectural structuring. With built-up torso adornments, these frocks are somewhat futuristic. Also frequented are dual-slits, lending a sultry edge to a maxi dress. Memorable ensembles include an extreme mullet salmon top, paired with a scale gathered slit skirt and a yellow toga dress.
Ash to Gold is inspired by the power of evolving and of taking on new challenges. The company’s site reads, “From simple beginnings, comes an extraordinary existence…” Based in Brisbane, the designer has gained an international following and reputation for creative silhouettes.
