This Fall 2010 show was the best I've ever seen from Twinkle by Wenlan to date. Flattering mini dresses, whether it's a strapless, one shoulder or flutter sleeve, all work well for a petite frame. Twinkle by Wenlan, takes chunky knits to the next level with a lean, short sweater dress.
Inspiration for this collection is stems from the tale of Hansel and Gretel, seen through Thorn and Vine and Birch Feather prints and a color palette that represents a journey through the forest - midnight blue, olive green, grey, brown, mustard, royal purple and black and white.
Details include angular framing through piping, hints of lace and exposed zippers. Twinkle Jewels are weighted and twisted, with chokers, draped necklaces, chunky chains and cubes in gold, silver in antique, sparkly and gunmetal tones, red and purple.
