For SS17, Ong's inspirations take you on a great American road trip from the Wild West to the Deep South and finishing off at the Grand Canyon.

Key Looks include:
Showgirl fringed and beaded cocktail dress with the beads positioned in a country gingham pattern.
Statement leopard print jumpsuit with lace embellished pockets and shoulders. In true Pairam's style the leopard print isn't all what it seems. Look closely and you'll see silhouettes of cacti amongst the animal print.

There is also a nod to David Hockney's painting 'Grand Canyon' with key colours of sunset red, midnight blue, cactus green and burnt orange
with the natural desert formations seen as cascading ruffles and frills on an evening dress.
