Romona Keveža’s Fall 2019 evening wear collection takes us back in time and chronicles the journey of a Baroness forced to flee her country with only her wardrobe and precious jewelry passed down from generations.
Keveža captures the Old World glamour of a voyage on the iconic Orient Express with confident shapes, luxurious fabrics and exquisite detailing, evoking a sense of allure and mystery.
The journey begins in Bucharest with a sleek jet-black lamé gown with a high collar and long sleeves. A mixture of shimmering silver metallics and intricate sequin Damask lace add rich texture and dimension. The 5-ply silk crepe and silk stretch crepe silhouettes, in brilliant Romona Red and black, offer contrast and depth, while Keveža’s master crafted asymmetrical necklines showcase unique shapes that are
powerful yet feminine.
Upon arrival in Paris, the collection softens with airy cocktail dresses and gowns made of French net with flowing skirts, long illusion sleeves, delicate petal accents and vintage beaded belts. The ethereal shapes are effortless and romantic.
In London we are introduced to sophisticated silhouettes made of re-embroidered lace accented with illusion overblouses showcasing intricate patterns adding a sense of intrigue. The collection culminates with two exquisite gowns. The first, a fluted gown featuring a daring illusion v-neckline and fluted skirt made of beaded Damask Lace. The second, a Romona Red ball gown made of Garden lace showcasing a corset bodice. The grand ball gown is removable, revealing a slim cocktail dress with a low illusion back.
The Fall 2019 Romona Keveža Collection is one of worldly sophistication and is a true demonstration of refined elegance with exceptional fabrics, exquisite fit and master craftsmanship.
