Jayson Brundson is known for his modern-day romanticism and his latest collection, The Lady Is A Tramp, further affirms his reputation. Presented as an art installation, guests walked onto a set strewn with books, bedside lamps, black roses and wrought iron furnishings, evoking the alluring time period of the 1920s.
The models were reclined languidly on sofa beds and propped up on stools with the physical patience to rival most yogis (one even mentioned that half her derriere had fallen asleep!) The collection itself was every bit high-glamour - heavy on lace, plaid taffeta frocks, rich reds, bodice-ripping jackets and ravishing black georgette slips that snaked around the body.
Brundson delivered a sumptuous spectacle with a generous dose of sex thrown into the mix - from whispers of lace peeking out from under blouses and a dangerous mix of leopard print and leather gloves, to an aptly-named “Harlot Skirt” and a buffed male model with his 1000-yard stare, greeting guests upon entry. Way to make us blush.
