Transforming the runway into an atmosphere fit for a date with Saint Valentine, Jayson Brunsdon presented his runway show as loved-up as ever. Parisian wrought iron chairs and beds of roses laced the runway as models in voluminous skirts, brocade blazers, dramatic make-up, and quiffed hair walked.
Great women of the past have always inspired the collections of Brunsdon, however this year he was twinkled by another fancy, a quote by praised author Gertrude Stein: 'a rose is a rose' meaning 'I am what I am'. Brunsdon from this quote, developed the lovey-dovey, retro-glam vibe of this year's collection, while maintaining the ladylike elegance he has become famous for.
