The event saw legendary Austrian designer,Katharina Kaesbach, premiering her 2017 Couture collection, which showed off an array of eloquent gowns, beautiful cocktail dresses, and modern power-suits.

Katharina’s couture collection encompassed some of the industries finest fabrics and most sought-after materials including silk, lace and brocade. The collection was composed of monochromatic colour schemes as she excellently employed the use of both vibrant colours and soft pastels. The collections balance between bold and conservative cuts, where each garment was hand embroidered with real pearls, exotic feathers and fine beads. The elegance of the cuts highlighted the beauty of the female aura. By flawlessly manifesting the inner worthiness of the female form, while the models walked down the red carpet it was clear that every woman present felt a state of calm with their inner being.
