One of our favorite designers, Sue Wong, recently unveiled a collaboration with the film Oz: The Great and the Powerful. You won’t see any inspired glam from the likes of the Dorothy or the Tin Man, but rather the women of Emerald City, and the Good and Bad Witches. From the company:
SUE WONG unveils a spellbinding collection of evening dresses inspired by the upcoming Disney fantasy-adventure film, Oz The Great and Powerful,. This limited-edition collection arrives in stores just in time for the launch of the motion picture in spring 2013. Sue Wong’s unique vision for elegant fashion and her mantra of “Beauty Magic Transformation” aligns well with the spirit of the fantasy world in the film to deliver sophisticated dresses for modern women everywhere.
The collection takes its inspiration from a number of themes in the film. The art deco of Emerald City inspires a stunning rose empire waist column dress with intricate deco geometric hand beaded detail, while the stark black and white visuals of Kansas are manifested in dresses detailed in black and white seutache embroidery. The competing duality of the Good Witch and the Bad Witches characters give rise to ethereal gowns of white and champagne juxtaposed with dramatic femme fatale gowns of black, while the playful fantasy Landscapes of Oz and porcelain visuals of China Town come alive in dresses of floral applique and blue and white lace. From the fine fabrics to the exquisite detailing, each piece is a testament to Sue Wong’s masterful blending of high glamour looks with wearability fit for soirees, dates and red-carpet worthy events.
