This season, designer Sabinna Rachimova and her label SABINNA celebrated love with a collection that was all about romance and teen love in today’s virtual world. Pieces were girly and feminine, but at the same time came with an in-your-face (literally!) messages across models faces like ‘Be Mine Or Go Away’.  A touch of tradition was added with Sabinna’s signature beautifully hand-knitted crochets, inspired by her grandmother and creating a nostalgic feeling of being in love for the first time.

The theme, ‘mixed feelings meet mixed materials’ revealed textures of velvet with billowing baby blue heart-printed silk, organza with original prints and rose gold woven jacquard pieces in mint, navy and red hues. Garments were upgraded from schoolgirl to grown up with belts and corsets to create exaggerated feminine curves.
