Designer Jeanie Chun and Dr. Lawrence Tseu presented a fashion show of Chun's romantic, Victorian themed holiday and bridal collection at Waialae Country Club on Sept. 28.
The designer said she has always loved the idea of versatility, and put her concept to use during a segment during which she demonstrated ways to transform the look of basic black dresses through styling, swapping out belts, bold statement jewelry, hats and jackets, which she deemed "a wonderful trick" for frequent travelers.
Using her favorite palette of black and white, splashes of color added interest, including romantic spring florals under gowns of lace, for a beautiful twist on the typical solid-color wedding gown.
The program also featured music by Iggy Jang and Cathy Foy.
Jeanie showed floral print under sheer lace.

Jeanie also showed several holiday gowns sure to turn heads. Iggy Jang provides the aural backdrop.
