I had the honour of working with Rebecca on the music for her fantastic show.

After Dido’s lights went out a few people immediately stood up to leave. Fortunately, they were stopped by mysterious musical sounds and disco ball-esque splashes of light: the harbinger of Rebecca Ward’s spectacle. Originally from New Zealand, the designer showed a collection called Parasomnia. You know, that state between dream and reality.
Rebecca devised an original choreography for her models. In extreme slow motion they entered the runway one-by-one, at the midpoint very quietly turning to both sides of the public and shuffling further. That, combined with the heavy, deep bass sounds, created a kind of tension that considerably boosted the sensation.
We did not hear you complaining about the pace, because man, what splendor came past us! In particular, the silhouettes of the dresses were stunning. Sleek and diminutive from above the hips and accented with a lot of volume. Our favorite: a black, sleeveless dress. The top transparent with subtle, pale pink rose print, the skirt of large scales of leather.
Second favourite: a black strapless, leather midnight-blue dress with details that were reminiscent of angel wings. The platform sandals in which the girls were wearing seamlessly completed the collection. Bands of black ruffles, and a platform heel and shuffling indeed seemed to be the only option.
Furthermore striking and innovative, yet not too far-fetched: the trousers had a carved circle on the thigh. In other hands it could appear raunchy with Rebecca carried it off with class. Bold, but oh so sexy. We see great potential here!
