Besides her dramatic personal life full of messy scandals and rumors, Marilyn Monroe stands strong to this day as America’s most celebrated pop and cultural icon as well as the most prominent sex symbol. While her white halter-neck dress is what brought her international fame, Packham decided to omit the particular piece but create a collection that is slightly subdued in the “sexy” department with more of elegance and modernism despite being blatantly inspired by the muse. Should anyone wonder what Marilyn would be wearing if she lived in the year 2015, or “should” be wearing rather, it is probably safe to direct the attention to Packham’s S/S ’15 collection adorned with beads, glitter, elaborate prints reminiscent of her most thriving days as a model, actress, and singer.
As one of UK’s most successful fashion brands, Jenny Packham has garnered attention from world over as a go-to brand for contemporary bridal and evening wear, with clients ranging from Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Kate Hudson to the Duchess of Cambridge.
