Using fabrics that were trimmed and fused with inserts of leather signaling a wonderfully handmade quality. Evening dresses were highlighted with vibrant colors and often trimmed with delicate fringe. This gave an overall wonderful fluidity to the collection.
Mr. Baptista’s collection was anything but bland and was inspired by a Nick Night photograph “colourescent” that hangs along side of a portrait of J.G. Ballard.
