Sara Sampaio worked up the ramp in a daring see-through Victorian-esque dress. 

"When you see the dresses of this collection, you feel that it's maybe heavy or that there's a lot of embroidery or ornament, but in reality it's very light. Women now want to fly, want to feel comfortable, sensual and happy," the designer said speaking about the collection in an interview with WWD.
