Although their families are feuding, Romeo and Juliet find harmony in their love for each other. Their costumes at the ball reflect their compatibility with a matching sky blue and silver colour palette. To achieve this look, Hudson mixed cut and crushed velvets, brocades and intricate designs to create an extravagant interpretation of the star-crossed lovers.
