Full of elegance and grace, her flowing designs glided down the runway with glittering beaded textures taken from cherry blossom designs and zen gardens. Utilising orgami folding techniques into Roland's work with a unique fisl-coupe fabric that mimicked the Japanese artist Toko Shinoda's brush strokes. With Australia's very own Alexandra Ambrosio closing the show, it was definitely one to remember!
