I have been a fan of Couture+Love+Madness for the longest time. Designer Cristina Tridente is not only one of the most talented artists around, but she is also a mega babe and all-round lovely person.
She was recently the first Australian invited to show in Qingdao, (at China’s 3rd biggest Fashion Festival) where her designs were extremely well received. She’s been invited back to show in Qingdao next year, but also has India in her sights.
Cristina’s signature style focuses colourful and fun designs, using luxurious oriental fabrics (sourced from Qingdao!) with western designs. A testament to her talent, each piece is completely unique and original – I can’t think of any other designer doing something similar to Couture+Love+Madness.
