Rohmir is celebrating 10 years in high fashion with her AW17 collection. Born of Russian nobility, Olga Roh began the Swiss luxury fashion brand in 2007 after studying for her masters at Istituto Marangoni in London and PhD at the University of Bern. Heavily influenced by her journeys around Europe, this range was dedicated to Spain.

Titled “El Castillo Secreto: A Magic Journey”, the catwalk started with a video that showcased part of this journey. The film showed models walking through beautiful countrysides and castle grounds, before the lights came up in the Freemason hall and the flamenco dancer came out. Dancing to the music he set the scene before the models joined him on the catwalk.

A luxurious baroque design in velvet, lace and chiffon fabrics alike made up a lot of the pieces, with flares, ruffled sleeves, dresses and capes all taking on this statement style. Not forgetting the mix of knitted, tasseled and sheer fabrics, that added charm throughout the collection.


Every aspect was thought of, from the pearl trim hats and roses hair clips to the flamenco inspired makeup, fitting into the theme of the collection effortlessly. The colour palette featured reds, golds and blacks, creating a real statement throughout.

This Spanish collection was truly special and the catwalk was like nothing you’d seen before, every detail faultlessly following the theme.
