BASIL SODA had the honor to launch in Singapore his Couture Collection of 20 exclusive gowns and one wedding dress at the First Annual Awards Gala Dinner Night of the Asian Couture Federation. The Show took place on the 25th of November, 2014. Asian Celebrities, press, society figures attended the show. BASIL SODA is the first Middle Eastern designer to be invited by the Asian Couture Federation. The collection's inspirational starting point was an image from Mr. Noboyushi Araki that lead to the in-depth research of Shibari; the Japanese art of rope tying. It represented both a sense of strength and fragility. The silhouettes varied in shapes but all embodied a certain structured delicateness. Pieces rendered in soft textiles and rich embroideries give a more ethereal look to the strong outer shell. The color palette combined delicate pastels with pops of vibrant colors to contrast the mood and give lightness from red, yellow to white, soft salmon and pure aqua blue.
