Collette Dinnigan 2012/2013 collection.
The principles and elements of design that have been utilised to create this garment include Line, direction, texture, colour balance. The vertical lines created by the pleats of the peplum enhance the symmetrical, structured shape of the jacket, and emphasises the illusion of the small waist.

The hook and eye on the jacket helps secure the jackets to make the garment more secure against wearer’s body in an aesthetically pleasing way.
