New Zealand designer Ruscoe Art Fashions latest collection (AW21) is inspired by Anne Frank and the Secret Annex.
We asked the designer to give us some background information on this beautiful collection: "The high necklines with puffed sleeves finishing with cuffs, to depict the feeling of being trapped but hopeful at the same time. The bodycon dresses and gowns took shape when I remembered how Anne was exploring her sexuality while writing her diary. She was provocative in her thoughts but couldn't express them widely. The geometric prints reflect the maze that was the secret annex."
