Asilio Designer Cynthia Farchione has teamed up with a number of fashionable ladies, including our very own Senior Buyer for Australian & International Designer Womenswear Teneille Ferguson, to create a collection of dresses which are set to go straight to the top of your new season wishlist…
The ‘Teneille Dress‘, designed in collaboration with Teneille Ferguson, is all about the finer details, incorporating intriguing textures and intricate finishes. The contrasting lace panels are designed to flatter and elongate the silhouette by tapering in the waistline and accentuating the bust through the deep plunging v-neckline. The dress is tailored to the body and follows into an unlined netted lace flared hemline. We spoke to Teneille about the process…
Myer: Tell us a bit about your dress?
Teneille Ferguson: The dress is created with flattering panels in different textures that contour the body with a transparent netting skirt that adds an on-trend elegance.
M: What inspired your design?
TF: I know that the Asilio girl loves fashion and wants to stand out, so I tried to create something that was bold, timeless and on trend but also made her feel confident.
M: How would you accessorise it?
TF: I would say minimal accessories are required so the dress can be the hero. A simple black heel and a bold lip would be perfect.
M: How involved were you in the design process?
TF: I briefed Cynthia on the initial concept and she did an incredible job bringing the dress to life. We caught up regularly to make decisions on panelling, trims and the final silhouette. I’m am thrilled with the end result.
M: As a buyer, what do you look for when shopping for a new dress?
TF: When buying for myself, versatility and fit are very important to me. I’m generally drawn to minimal pieces as I think the way that you wear it and style it is what brings the dress to life.
Asilio have collaborated with seven other influencers, including Nadia Bartel and Rebecca Judd. Each dress will be released over the coming weeks, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled as these dresses are all limited edition and are sure to sell out faster than you can say Spring Racing!
