Backstage Fun at THURLEY Resort '20

Okay, it’s time to get married

So we now have a wedding dress picked out, and all of the bridesmaid dresses. Now we just need a boyfriend.

Inspired by the mythical, underwater city of Atlantis that has fascinated and captivated treasure hunters for centuries, the Resort 20 collection of Thurley, ‘UTOPIA’ told the tale of the perfect civilisation lost in time.

Shells, sea creatures and pearls had been expertly woven into each and every garment, resembling a treasure trove of the sea’s gifts, brought to the surface and given new life.

Over 45 pieces hit the runway with the collection taking after the ethereal Grecian goddesses that once lived in the mythical, underwater city, ‘UTOPIA’ also marked a return to Thurley’s signature roots that earned them a cult-like following both locally and internationally.

“For this collection, I have rediscovered draping and plaiting in fluid, languid fabrications such as silk tulle, silk yoryu and silk jersey and revisiting techniques I explored a decade ago when building Thurley’s foundation,'' said Founder & Creative Director, Helen O’Connor.

The ‘UTOPIA’ collection is available to purchase from Thurley’s flagship Armadale and The Strand boutiques, major David Jones stores and various stockists worldwide from October, 2019.
