CRISTINA Tridente is unveiling a sneak peek of her new couture+love+madness collection in a Parisienne setting.
The Adelaide designer will officially launch the 12-piece collection at this year’s Adelaide Fashion Festival, which runs October 11 to 15.
In the lead up, Ms Tridente is giving The Advertiser an exclusive first look at one of her campaign images.
As the first South Australian to be accepted into London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins, Ms Tridente will complete an intensive course there next month.
In the lead-up she is exploring Europe and, earlier this month, met fashion photographer Weronika Mamot in Paris.
Polish-born Ms Mamot, who lives in Adelaide and travelled to France especially for the couture+love+madness project, took a series of photographs to showcase the collection.
They include a stunning image of model Romaine Aiassa, from Paris agency Jana Hernette.
Wearing a couture+love+madness brocade jumpsuit with a detachable skirt, she is holding a golden flower handcrafted from aluminium by Ms Tridente.
“It’s a modern take on bridal,” Ms Tridente said, adding the Eiffel Tower in the distance provided the perfect backdrop.
“The collection has a Parisienne feel.’’
