Eauseenon’s Autumn Winter 2017 collection, "The Innocents," follows the storyline of a female lead in a vintage horror film through her journey of self-discovery and perseverance. The collection consists of sweet girlish designs with a few bold pieces that possess the essence of a woman. An original print by the designer, the pattern of the melted flowers represents the enigmas and mystical phenomenons that she encounters throughout the film. Monotone pieces, inspired by classic gothic costumes often used in horror films, add a slight edge that symbolizes the female lead’s newfound independence exhibited in the finale.
