Old World Glamour

An ode to romance and old world glamour. Candle light, champagne, smokey eyes and a deep jade back drop. Heavy late afternoon Durban heat, reminiscent of New Orleans in late Summer. You can almost hear the moody blues piano crying her haunting melody through the humid air.
Entirely foam free installation and design, including wildly foraged and dried wild flowers, off set by opulently heavy headed, scented garden roses.

‘Tis the last rose of summer
Left blooming all alone
All her lovely companions
Are faded and gone

No flower of her kindred
No rose bud is nigh
To reflect back her blushes
Or give sigh for sigh
