Marios Schwab seduced with a luxurious collection that featured lots of layering, texture and sparkle. High-neck silk dresses gave a glimpse of flesh via lace paneling, while floor-length sheer gowns sparkled thanks to the sequin leotards worn underneath. But it was the finale dress, inspired by Marlene Dietrich, that stole the show. The floor-length creation made from a white, almost transparent mesh, had a gem-encrusted collar, and was covered in white beads and sparkly crystals. Schwab said it was inspired by Dietrich’s “naked” dresses. “She wore them near the end of her career and she co-designed them with a Hollywood designer called Jean Louis,” he said. “They were quite shocking at the time.”
