We were absolutely honored to showcase the newest Begitta collection “The Golden Empire” for Spring/Summer 2014 at Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival –Brisbane. The Golden Empire features the token whimsical and romantic designs that you have come to know and love from Begitta.
Many signature elements feature in the collection from hand draping, hand-appliqué, plenty of ruffles and a little bit of sparkle. Hundreds of hours of work went producing the collection of bespoke gowns from forty to over one-hundred hours per gown.
Inspired by a free spirited Gypsy Princess of a forgotten time. Brought forward from an immersion of the ornate details in hand woven tapestries, resplendent decor and dazzling adornment, intense jewel tones, heavy gold details and ornate crown jewels.

Mysterious, Passionate, Regal, Majestic, Bewitching
A magnificent collection of romance that will ever reign....
MBFF MEDIA BUZZ!
Begitta Featured at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in Brisbane on August 27th at the exquisite Brisbane City Hall, debuting the bewitching ‘GOLDEN EMPIRE’ Collection in the Emerging Designers Show to rave reviews and much love and attention from fans and media.
But the absolute show stopper, couture designer Begitta showed pieces that were part wearable art, part masterful dressmaking and altogether spectacular. Sequins, ruffles, jewels and bright colours abound in this sweet-as-candy collection.
"Molly &Polly created plenty of wow with their swimwear featuring bright neon colours and vibrant pineapple and reef prints. While Begitta took the sold-out audience to a magical land with her gypsy-inspired couture collection."
“Brisbane has an outstanding selection of emerging designers who showcased their collections on Day 2 of the festival and the absolute standout for me was the show-stopping designs from Begitta, with her collection Golden Empire.
Finally, the most inspiring work I saw came from the very talented designer Begitta Stolk under the label 'Begitta' who wowed the audience and critics alike with her fine detail, hand-embellishments, millinery and specialised couture. After having finalised her studies in Paris on specialised Haute Couture Techniques and working with prestige car company Peugeot on made to measure pieces, this is a woman who has no boundaries.
