What is the name of your collection?
The name of my Fall/Winter 2011/2012 collection, showcased through Dubai Fashion Week on the 22nd of April is ---Give me my “Leather” & take away my “Lace”
This collection is high end prêt-a-porter. It takes you through a world of contrasts; masculine vs. feminine, pleats vs. drapes and finally leather vs. lace. For this collection, there were elements fused together from old retro style to newer designs. It almost oscillates between different epochs of time, where in the 80s were the source of inspiration for kaftans with neon, bright colors which were followed by long, loose bohemian shirts and short dresses which the designer relied on for her baroque era inspired collection.
