Entitled 'The Magic Flute,' the Carlotta Actis Barone Spring/Summer 2013 collection takes its inspiration from the 1791 Mozart opera of the same name. Following the opera's narrative, the London-based designer aimed to create pieces that were a balance between good and evil.
The designer pays homage to the bright colors of characters Papageno and Papegena's costumes and creates striking garments that are both artful and whimsical. With ballet dancers and circus performers gracing its catwalk presentation, the Carlotta Actis Barone Spring/Summer 2013 collection left audience members in awe.
From its texture combinations and fearless explosion of color to its clown-inspired wigs, this symbolic and music-inspired womenswear collection is a performer's dream that is sure to turn heads when worn under the bright lights of a dramatic stage setting.
