I'm hardly going to rival Craig McDean's current Gucci campaign with this shot so you'll just have to take my word for it that Cristina Ortiz's collection lived up to her burgeoning reputation for impeccably constructed 'OrganicCouture', as the company like to call it. With impressive credentials from the houses of Maxmara, Prada and Lanvin (no less!), Ortiz's art is to keep the structure on the inside -using boning where necessary- and allowing her finest quality, mainly monochrome fabrics to drape with ease.
