Last month Lenka Couture launched its debut collection of sustainable and Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) accredited bridal gowns and Shakira Petrucci from Zucci Hairdressing was involved in the hair styling for the photo shoot.
Sustainability in fashion is nothing without style and good design, and that’s why design integrity is critical to Lenka. The debut collection ‘Tough Glamour’ encompasses Lenka’s love of contrasts and contradictions, soft and feminine but tough and strong. It is defined by her desire to celebrate individuality, her rebellious intent to break the rules, and her signature style of clean modern lines and feminine silhouettes; simple and elegant, with a hint of dramatic edge.
For the photo-shoot Shakira created a modern take on the tradition wedding hair-do, with soft feminine pieces of hair falling around the face and a strong quiff pulling the hair off the forehead into a messy bun secured at the centre of the crown.
The Couture Collection has been designed in addition to Lenka’s custom design service, which she designs from her studio in Melbourne and her consulting space in Sydney. There is also a Capsule Collection that is Lenka’s more accessible collection of made to measure Eco-Conscious gowns. They are elegant, timeless gowns reflecting the clean modern lines and feminine silhouettes of her Couture Collection. Made from luxurious silk with an amazing recycled polyester lining and simple detailing. The capsule collection is available exclusively through Brides Of Armadale in Melbourne.
For Zucci, partnering with other sustainable brands is important. Shakira said “We love supporting businesses who want to make a social, environmental and sustainable difference to our world. It is inspiring and motivating for our team to work with great brands like Lenka Couture.”
