Sue Wong’s muse for the spring was ‘the Enchantress’. According to the designer, “The Enchantress is a mysterious woman of great charm and fascination, who practices magic, a sorceress, a woman who is considered to be dangerously seductive, charismatic and sensual without trying.” Indeed, this season Sue’s work had a smoldering yet blasé quality. Even her trademark embellished gowns were toned down to emphasize elegant forms and silhouettes.

Jumpstarting the show with a Brazilian samba performance straight from the streets of Rio, Sue set a hypnotic and mesmerizing tone. The long procession of dresses that followed was inspired by a myriad of mythical temptresses, ranging from pretty ballerinas to Edwardian ladies. As is her tradition, Sue once again brought to life breathtaking female goddesses, channeling different eras and places.

The most striking pieces from the collection were the Gin Alley flapper dresses. Sexy and sassy to the core these vintage interpretations adorned with godet hems, illusion beaded yokes, tulip skirts, and floating panels, were retro at its best. Equally inspiring were the long, flowing, ephemeral wedding gowns. There is no doubt about it; Sue knows exactly what every girl’s walking down the isle dreams are made of.
