The collection was dominated by layered colorful dresses. The voluminous heavily layered blush dress got everyone’s attention. Other, similar voluminous dresses paraded on the runway.

Despite all the layers, the dresses were still very suitable for real-life occasions and seemed very comfortable to wear. A huge fashion moment was the double ruffle dresses, where the second ruffle was usually made from a sheer organza or a different fabric. Speaking of sheer, models wore many transparent skirts and dresses enriched with a lot of details or abstract prints.

Ginger & Smart devoted great attention to the accessories. The bags and shoes were the highlights of the collection, predominantly in vivid bright colors. Shades of bright green, pink and blue could be seen on most of the platform Teva-like sandals and barrel bags.

The designers Genevieve and Alexandra Smart incorporated artistic haute couture details surprisingly well into their latest designs and turned them into pieces that every woman can wear. The Resort 2018 Collection is very versatile and has the perfect dress for any mood. There are relaxed, comfortable and playful cuts for long walks on sunny days. On the other hand, for women who are not afraid to express their sexuality, Ginger & Smart made the perfect ultra-sensational see-through dresses.
