About

Nicholas Oakwell “Matchstick” gown in tulle with bugle beads from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, with gold and silver ombré beaded panels at bust, waist and leg.
Oakwell, who started out as a milliner before turning his hand to couture, presented a collection of gowns and coats inspired by the British jeweller, Andrew Grima. In the Sixties and Seventies, Grima shook up the jewellery world with his bold, Cubist designs and each piece in Oakwell's collection was inspired by an item from his vaults.
