Issa was to be the last womenswear show on the BFC catwalk this London fashion Week. What a wonderful and colourful collection to finale.
The colourful bejewelled turbans were the creative glue that held this collection together. The day dresses made from a variety of exquisite fabrics such as soft silk, jersey, subtle chiffon, handmade lace, embroidered cotton voile and italian matt jersey to protect against the sun were very wearable. I loved the bright Diwali like colour palette of primary red, yellow, blue and bright green pared down with earthy tones reflecting the dusty and faded palaces of India.
I am sure that this collection will be very attractive to Indian buyers as well as the
European market and others.
Issa says of her SS 2011 collection...
" this collection allows the modern woman to have fun clashing colours whilst looking chic and refined in easy to wear dresses for a complete wardrobe to elegantly enhance and flatter her figure."
I hope to write more about Brazilian influence on fashion in London in my LFW diary I am writing for revista b magazine to be published in the next issue.
