I feel like I’ve entered Aladdin’s cave. The runway is glistening with a sea of sparkles at the Belluccio Collection Launch and Miss World Australia Top Models Judging event convened at Whitehouse Institute of Design, Melbourne.

Abundant tulle of a long length gown swishes past me, sculpted smoothly at the bust before tapering to the hip line it swirls and falls in diaphanous ripples at the entrant’s feet. Ephemeral. Old world glamour for the likes of modern day Rita Hayworths, Grace Kellys and Audrey Hepburns.

Sheer tulle so delicate like webs are draped across torsos, diamantés and tiny gems encrust and gild lean silhouettes. The contrast of sheer silks with solid jewels is not only effective but devilishly difficult to achieve. The mass of one small bijoux on a light weight fabric automatically implicates a challenge to draping.

Designer Julie Sufi is a master in beading. Defying the odds of physics she coats her featherweight materials with kilograms of embellishment without compromising the line of the design. Tulle based brocades, jewel toned silks, masterfully draped jersey renders me so enchanted that I find my eyes getting all misty with tears at the sheer beauty.

It’s a dream! I’m so delighted and relieved that I chose Julie to make my own wedding gown for our nuptials in 7 weeks. I trust her completely in the creation of the dress of my imaginings. Viva Belluccio! I foresee future masterpieces from the ingenious Sufi glistening on runways across the seas of Australia.
