Some years and multiple collections later, State of Georgia presents Dancing On Your Tiptoes, a collection closely following the current pastel trend however with unique features of vintage influence.
“As I designer I look to my mood and current influences rather than follow trends. I love interpreting styles from all era’s and times and carefully placing them together to create a vintage yet fresh feel,” she says.
Hall’s Spring/ Summer 2012 Collection Dancing On Your Tiptoes for State of Georgia is sugar and spice and all things nice, neatly packaged in dainty day dresses, flowing knee-length gowns and the perfect cocktail frock. The collection includes dresses decorated with lace, chiffon, floral prints and capped sleeves, all in sugared-almond shades of pastel blue, green and cream. With labels such as ‘Cutie Pie’, ‘Chiffon Cheeky Column’, and ‘Crochet Ornaments’ the pieces are lady-like enough to have with tea! Hall says each piece is best worn to individual style, “Style is in the eye of the beholder! All of my pieces can be styled up or down. Girls can choose to embrace the bold prints, or keep it simple with classic accessories and minimal fuss.”
Dancing On Your Tiptoes is set to take you anywhere ‘from dance party to tea party and everywhere in between’. Hall says inspiration for the collection comes from the season. “The collection is very fun and feminine, and I wanted the name to reflect that. It’s light, playful and perfect for summer days. There’s no single place from which I draw inspiration. Food, music, new places I’ve been, new people I’ve met – everything inspires me,” she says.
Hall is known for her signature artistic flair, an ability to stray from the norm and fearlessness of individual style. But what exactly is her signature artistic flair? “Definitely my prints – they are the core of each collection and really allow me to express my individual style and show my true colours,” she admits.
Dancing On Your Tiptoes provides ladies with the opportunity to go all-out feminine in outfit selection or just to add splashes of inner-feminity as desired. Each piece in the collection can be worn teamed head-to-toe with others or on its own to down-grade the girly image. So whether you feel your inner Chanel coming through or something a little less lady-like, you’ll find use in this collection!
There’s no doubt State of Georgia is a label to watch, with every collection appropriately fitting the current seasonal trend while providing stylish girls with an individual and artistic edge. “These past few months we have been working hard on a brand spanking new website. It’s really important to me that our customers can pick up their favourite State of Georgia piece regardless of their geographic location. Plus I love having direct contact with the girls who come back season after season!”
