The Michaela Schmid 'Shabby Chic' collection embodies the '80s British aesthetic, infusing tulle party dresses, cardigans and short-sleeved coats with a beautiful bouquet of ruffled petals and rosettes. The line's pastel pink palette is tempered with a smattering of black and smoke gray, a beautiful juxtaposition of hard and soft.

Through their fashions, they can project their inner damsels-in-distress or princesses in a modern way. Ideas such as petal-covered clothing promotes the romantic aesthetic and therefore, evokes the consumer's desire to have a happy ending.
