Showcasing her bespoke creations, clients can book in for a consultation to try on gowns and view fabric samples sourced from around the world in order to create their dream dress with all garments created on site. With a focus on red-carpet, mother-of-the-bride/groom, formals and now launching into bridal, couture+love+madness, already a fixture on Adelaide’s couture scene, will become a bridal destination for brides wanting something unique.

“It was a natural progression for me to have a shopfront. Not only for ease and accessibility for my clients, but also to cement myself in the local fashion industry with a local, solid presence”, says Cristina.

Cristina’s latest collection ‘La Vie En Rose’, launched as part of the 2018 Adelaide Fashion Festival, and is the first official bridal collection from couture+love+madness. With shades of avocado, soft coral and hints of silver, the collection encapsulates romance, femininity and sensuality.

“Highlight pieces for me include the ‘Olivia’ Dress, which features hundreds of hand-dyed feathers in shades of avocado, white and pale peach, each cut and sewn into delicate flowers, finished with pearl and crystal centres. But the grand finale piece, the ‘Rose’ Dress, is adorned with thousands of laser-cut organza petals, cascading into a billowing skirt with over 30 metres of fabric. ‘Rose’ is completed with its hand pleated tulle bodice and velvet highlights,” says Cristina.

The studio will also stock Cristina’s latest label Tridente, born out of her studies at Central Saint Martin’s in 2017 which has a more architectural aesthetic. Having dressed celebrities including the likes of Dannii Minogue, Lucy Durack, Michaela Banas and Vera Blue, Cristina is proud to have a new head quarters in Adelaide for her local and interstate cliental.
