The Daks show, held at the Royal Opera House in London, began with a lot of lilac: pale for a flowing, silk plissé vest; shimmering, metallic-tinged for a hooded blouse; printed for a halter-neck top. As the show progressed, lilac turned to ice blue, cool silver, and, finally, white. Looks were ultra feminine in silhouette (cinched waists and slinky dresses), fabric (the aforementioned taffeta and silk), and detail (there were plenty of ruffles—one top consisted solely of ruffles given form by black ribbon—and appliqué flowers.)
