'Abeona's Garden'

The new bridal, evening and occasion wear collection by Hermione de Paula.

Inspired by Abeona the Roman goddess who protects travelers as they start out on new journeys, children as they take their first steps and all of us as we embrace the opportunity of the unknown Hermione is very excited to present her new collection. Delicate floral prints intertwine with exquisite embroidery as the boundaries between the aisle, red carpet and desert disappear. Always looking to challenge preconceptions which dictate how and when we can experience joy for the old or love of the new Hermione's collection dares you to decide.

Never let another chose how you experience yourself.
