East Meets West by Christopher Lemaire

Spring being just round the corner, I thought I would gather one of my favourite look for 2011.

East meets west.  Another Kimono inspired collection by designer Christopher Lemaire.  What I really like about this collection is the overall look.  The look is just super cool and simple.  Beautiful earthy colours with a sprinkle of vibrant reds and orange for contrast.  Everything is designed to look effortless.  The location blew me away, you can just feel the mood of the audience, in this relaxed atmosphere and the choice of music to this video just completes the whole mood.   Just superb!!

My Inspirations...

Hi, there! I trust that you had a wonderful Christmas.

Stepping into the year 2011!!  I am taking this opportunity to wish you all a wonderful New Year, filled with amazing surprises, and a new level of hope and opportunity that will come with it.

I have gathered a few images of things that have helped me in my design work through out the year.

I  read about the great Madame Vionnet in my research. A French fashion designer, best known as the queen of bias cut. Some of Madame Vionnet designs were inspired by the Kimono which she incorporated and translated it into her own Western designs. That inspiration, influenced some of my designs...
