The Venus Gown
On June 19 2022, Sydney’s premier Couture designer, Diane Lewis Couture showcased the delicate ethereal Venus Gown on the Red Carpet during the TV Week Logie Awards held in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. The Couture gown was worn by TV celebrity Carol Ferrone from ABC Channel’s hit TV show, Back In Time For Dinner, which just wrapped up their filming of the 3rd season’s show.
The Venus Gown worn by Carol Ferrone was part of Diane Lewis Couture Renaissance Collection . Created with 60 meters of tulle and a silk corseted underlay, it's a goddess confection that is feminine with ethereal vibes.
Carol Ferrone, TV & Media Personality, Business Coach and Mentor, is the breakout star of the social history series Back In Time For Dinner, which sent her family of five to live, eat, work and dress across 170 years of Australian history. Now in its third season, the show has been an unequivocal hit for the ABC Channel with the first season nominated for a Logie Award for best lifestyle program in 2019.
A self-confessed foodie, art and history lover Carol sees herself as a storyteller.
Carol has been a national brand Ambassador for Foodbank Australia, Australia's largest food charity since 2018 and continues to be a mentor and guide to women in business as well as an MC and guest presenter at events.
“Our Renaissance Collection – which I renamed during Covid – is a rebirth of my signature handwriting: voluminous skirts, corset bodices, modern asymmetric necklines – all with a signature look that started back when we opened in 1990” says Designer Diane Lewis. As one of Australia’s most esteemed couture designers, Diane Lewis launched her acclaimed label back in 1990 and quickly became one of Australia’s most trusted and sought-after designers (you’ll spot her red carpet creations everywhere from The Oscars to The Logies, Australia’s Emmys). Specialising in one-off, made-to-measure couture-finished gowns - flaunting the brand’s signature high-voltage modern aesthetic - Diane Lewis’ latest collection arrivals only go to bolster our love affair with her iconic designs.
The designer’s latest collection, Renaissance, is a reflection of Diane’s inner discoveries as a creative over the past 12 months. On witnessing the dramatic impact of the recent pandemic in the fashion industry, Diane recognised the changing scale of weddings, both locally and internationally. Reconnecting with her original mission statement, first conceived 30 years ago (to deliver new and unwavering high-fashion looks to the industry) Renaissance was born, and with it a selection of truly breathtaking gowns swept up in a sea of tactile textures and stunning silhouettes.
Carol Ferrone, TV star, Business Coach, Mentor and philanthropist celebrated for her bubbly and exuberant warm personality who also leads the cast of ABC Channel, Back In Time For Dinner. Celebrated for her inspirational character and boundless expertise, Diane Lewis Couture creates her magnificent gowns from her Sydney atelier and showcases internationally.
